I am a PhD Candidate at the Augmented Human Lab, University of Auckland. I explore and create technologies which extend human memory and cognition.
I completed my B.Eng at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Formerly an undergraduate researcher at SUTD-Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) International Design Center in Robotics, Community Design and Additive Manufacturing. During breaks, I make short-films and play the ukulele, acoustic and electric bass guitar.

My research aims to build the next generation of “memory augmentation” technologies, which use “biosignals” (physiological responses) to peer deeper into people’s cognitive context and states, to give just-in-time memory training and assistance.
Project Prospero explores the use of biosignals of heart rate variability and skin conductance to detect calmness (cognitve context) for opportunistic memory training.
Project ProspecFit investigates the digitisation of an effective memory training technique to use on smartphones.
Project MEye (work-in-progress) explores the use of eye-movements and other biosignals to detect intentions to recall information in order to provide adaptive memory assistance.
I publish in premier venues in Human-Computer Interaction such as IMWUT (Ubicomp) and CHI. Filter publications
