WELCOME TO

CHISEL

We work on the emergent intersections of design, technology and well-being to improve the psychological impact of everyday tech. We employ HCI research methods to inform our design decisions to increase their efficacy in the local context.

What we do

Chisel is a hub for innovative and inclusive design practices. We use a participatory design approach to focus on learning and healthcare technologies, particularly for people within the margins in the global south. Our inclusionary research goal is to use design and technology to engage, empower and educate the community. Chisel’s research interests lie at the intersections of human-computer interaction (HCI), design and (social) psychology, primarily focusing on; Assistive & educational technologies for special user groups (cognitive & physical disabilities, mental health), Child-Computer Interaction (CCI) and Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D).

Areas of interest

Inclusion

Our research follows a people-centered approach to create a more inclusive society by developing digital and non-digital platforms to support marginalized communities.

Well-being

At Chisel, we aim to design optimized user experiences to promote the well being of individuals and communities.

Learning

We utilize design thinking, user experience (UX) design and strategy in our research to facilitate educational and learning practices, especially for children with cognitive and learning disabilities.
