I am a Ph.D. student at the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), as part of the Newbreed-Successful Ageing interdisciplinary program by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action and the Örebro University. My research work is developing in the interface of design computing, spatial cognition, and environmental psychology.

My research interest involves human perception and cognition in the built environment, inclusive design principles, as well as the development of a cognitive technological framework for people-centred parametric design. My current project focusses on multimodal behavioural studies with an emphasis on the visuo-locomotive perception of humans and aims to extract precedents that can be embedded into assistive technologies in a range of design applications such as HRI design, user experience design, etc. Special consideration is on the individual differences of users emanating from ageing, and age-related specific conditions.
