Selected Work

Printed Paper Markers
Investigating the unlikely intersection of computer vision with paper crafting and printing for making inexpensive and functional tangible interfaces.

Tangible Interfaces with Printed Paper Markers. DIS 2020 (Honorable Mention). PDF

Sensing Kirigami
Sensing Kirigami is a technique for crafting functional paper inputs. Carbon-coated paper is used for resistive sensing of folds and bends, while the laser cutter is used to etch and cut 3D circuits and kirigami patterns.
