Dr. Marianna Obrist – Multisensory Design Thinking

Multisensory Design Thinking

Dr. Marianna Obrist (Lecturer in Interaction Design)
Department of Informatics, University of Sussex

Despite the fact that interactive technologies have permeated our environment (e.g., mobile, ubiquitous, social computing) and have become an essential part of our everyday life (e.g., work, leisure, education, health, etc.), the way we interact with them is still limited. Interactive systems stimulate dominantly our senses of vision and hearing, partly our sense of touch (e.g., vibration in mobile phones), while our senses of taste and smell are widely neglected and under-exploited in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research. In this talk, Marianna Obrist will talk about her research on multisensory experiences for interactive technologies.

Short Bio:
Marianna Obrist is a Lecturer in Interaction Design at the University of Sussex, at the School of Engineering and Informatics. She joined Sussex after spending two years as a Marie Curie Fellow at the Culture Lab of the School of Computing Science in Newcastle University. Before that Marianna was an Assistant Professor for Human-Computer Interaction and Usability at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Salzburg, Austria. The focal point of her research is to create a rich and systematic understanding on users experiences with interactive technologies. Recently she investigates the design spectrum for touch, taste, and smell experiences for interactive technologies. More details are available here: and here .
