Hi, I’m Fereshteh, 

Researcher, Interaction Designer and Creative Developer of Sensing Interfaces in the areas of Human Computer Interactions.


I tickle my senses to stimulate my mind and to spark creativity and innovation. I passionately explore  the design and creation of novel sensing interfaces and interactions which allows making sense of the world quicker, easier and more pleasant in an unobtrusive way.

I currently work as a research intern for TactualLabs with Dr. Paul Dietz and Dr. Clifton Forlines and have work experiences in software and design companies like Autodesk (Applied Research Lab) , Bentley (GenerativeComponents Team) and Gensler.

BTW, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology. My specification is Human-Computer Interaction. I have received my MS in Computation Design from Carnegie Mellon University, and B.Eng in Architecture and Building Technologies from University of Tehran, with great experience in AA (Architectural Association of London) summer school programs. 

I am certified in "Further Education & Training in Membrane Structures from IMS (Institute for Membrane and Shell Structure), Anhalt University of Applied Science in Germany and also, in "Advanced Course and Intensive Training in Spatial Structures and Systems" from Surrey University in UK.

Research Keywords: 

Human Computer Interaction, User Research, Interaction Design, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing, Wearable Electronics, Novel Sensing Techniques, Physical Prototyping.

Please feel free to check out my portfolio and CV for more information and contact me if you believe we have overlap in our research interests. I would be more than happy for collaboration.
