Academic Interests

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Communication, a Graduate degree in Interaction Design, and a Master’s degree in Communication and Education.

I am currently a Masters student in Digital Humanities at the Graduate Center. In discovering Digital Humanities as a promising pathway to exploring crucial issues in humanities using digital technology, I became curious to know how to use its theories and practices to explore the last mile of technology in cognition and learning.
