My name is Romy, I am a designer, artist and technologist based in Boston, USA. My work involves experimenting with new media to bridge the space between the physical and the digital.
I recently graduated with a Master in Design Studies in Technology from the Harvard’s Graduate School of Design where I learnt computational & experiential design, machine learning tools and interactive media.

I am passionate about participatory futures, collective creativity and love to explore these fields through speculation and computation. Since graduating, I held a  research position at the Laboratory for Design Technologies where I have been developing community co-design tools and in parallel have worked as a UX designer at MathWorks where I have designing educational games around the topic of bias in Data Science models.

I am formally trained as an architect, with a Bachelor of Architecture from the American University of Beirut. My previous professional experience includes design consultancy at Dar Group, and more recently creative technology in places like Supernormal and CannonDesign.
