A context-led approach to the design of body-worn performance technology
In a world a washed of new technologies, how does technology help us to support a person’s sense of wellbeing? Beyond technology and metrics, how can a body-worn device be designed to fit the person in different contexts of use and different performance needs? We are investigating the role of designing with sensor technology in body-worn devices from a Human Centred Co-design (HCcD) perspective and Research through Design (RtD) approach.
We are actively seeking a candidate for Master of Philosophy (MPhil) student with industry or research experience to work with a multidisciplinary team of researchers. We offer the opportunity to work in an established project with opportunity to expand your research networks beyond our university. If you are interested, read about QUT Postgraduate Study, the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) information page, and about the current Scholarship round 1, closing on 8th of September 2021. Given the topic of our project, the candidate must be an Australian citizen.
If interested, please send your EOI and CV to: A/Prof. Marianella Chamorro-Koc firstname.lastname@example.org
