ABOUT

Hi, I'm Rosalie, a design/engineer researcher passionate about soft human-computer interaction built upon textiles, smart materials, and wearables. My aim is to blur the boundary between technology and people via programmable materials. I graduated from Harvard Graduate School of Design, MDes Technology, and work as a design researcher at MIT Media Lab, Tangible Media Group.
 

Moving from designer to engineer spectrum, I can’t stress more on my experience as a Product Design Engineer R&D at Advanced International Multitech where I developed woven carbon fiber chairs that are single-piece, multi-stiffness, modular and customized with parametric designs and industrial material characterizations. 

Previous experiences that led me to this field include work at Nike OEM in Vietnam and Morphing Matter Lab at CMU. At Nike OEM, I gained knowledge of soft material such as upper, sole, and mass production of the shoe. At Morphing Matter Lab, I started my research journey by developing a woven textile prosthesis for breast cancer survivors that is hand-moldable, reversible, and lightweight. ​

 

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and ballroom dancing, while droning and surfing are coming soon!
