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 innotative design for innovative design using participatory and inclusive design practices with margins in the global south for learning and healthcare technologies. Our research focuses at the intersection of design, technology, and inclusion. We work on (1) assistive technologies (mobile apps and VR/AR systems) to enhance the quality of life of persons with disabilities (e.g. autism, dyslexia, visual impairment, dementia), and persons with mental health conditions (e.g. anxiety, depression), and (2) learning and playful technologies for children.
