I finished my master's degree in HCI/d from Indiana University in 2015, and I am now pursuing my PhD in HCI at Indiana University focusing on Design Communication. How do we explain our designs to others when we only have sketches, and wireframes? Especially to those who don't have a design background. I expect to graduate in May of 2019.
In my portfolio, I've selected three projects that focused on augmented reality. These projects are spread across several years, and I selected these three show to show my growth as a designer. I believe that augmented reality is a new paradigm of computing, and that we as designers need to begin guiding this technology towards a more human-centered direction. While I am able to design for any technology, I think that my work in AR speaks to some of my strengths, namely my leadership ability, my research methodologies, and my commitment to completing projects.
The first project, the Augmented Reality Theater was done during my Master's degree, and shows my ability to think creatively about an unknown technology. The second, the AR Note Taking, is a more practical view, which shows my ability to grow my knowledge of a design, even when faced with significant constraints. The third, the AR Museum Exhibit, shows my ability to run a project and deliver on requirements of a stakeholder from start to finish.
I have also included some work outside of AR in the archive section, along with a list of publications, and my blog, which is more broadly focused.
