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).
