My expertise includes user research, human-technology interaction, UI interface conception and Agile UX design. I have many years of work experience as a programmer, UX engineer, user researcher and interaction designer in a wide range of sectors from semi-conductor, consumer electronics to research and design of digital user interactions and services in Taiwan, the UK and Italy. Outside of work, I love creating interactive objects with microcontrollers such as Arduino and enthusiastically play finger exercises on the piano.
