Graduate Research Assistant

Ozgun is a design engineer and HCI Researcher. With a curiosity to deconstruct and understand how things move, she studied movement and cognition through her kinetic machines during her masters at the Royal College of Art, London. In her past work, she coupled bio-signals with mechanical automata to create a continuous non-verbal flow between the body and the machine. Currently, she's exploring intimate robotic interfaces in the context of motor skill acquisition and skill transfer, catering a symbiotic relationship between the body and the on-body interface where both are prone to change, learn from, and adapt to one-another over time. 

She is affiliated with the Soma Interaction Design Lab at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Microsystems Engineering at Uppsala University in Sweden, as a PhD candidate.
