Interaction Design & Design Research

I am an interaction designer and design researcher, focusing on practice-oriented design for societal change.

Combining design research competence on understanding tacit needs hidden behind routinized practices of people and design skills on physical and digital artefacts/systems, I explore designing for interaction to nudge people to be better able to be aware, decide, and act in everyday life.

I had been working as an interaction & user experience designer in the Human Interface Deisgn division in Fuji Xerox in Tokyo, in which I designed and did research on new services for workplace and office communication.

I am a graduate of Design for interaction in the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at the TU Delft in the Netherlands working in Connected Everyday Lab. Before that, I completed the bachelor of Visual Communication Design at Musashino Art University in Tokyo.
