Fluid Interfaces

MSRP Intern

Ivan (Alex) Herrero is an undergraduate student from the University of Puerto Rico: Mayagüez majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Visual Arts. He is a MIT Summer Research Program (MSRP) intern working at the Fluid Interfaces Group of the MIT Media Lab.

He works alongside Mina Khan and her team creating wearables for memory augmentation.  His role in the project included product design and user interaction.  Using surveys, sketches, and prototypes, he helped create a wearable camera using a human centered design approach.  The modular wearable camera uses facial recognition and real time audio feedback, and aims to reduce social isolation caused by not knowing the names of people.

Alex is an undergraduate researcher at the Human Centered Design Lab of UPRM. Additionally, he has interned at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. Additionally, he started his own student community for immersive media research and learning, Visionary.
