Amy Chen


Amy Y. Chen is a PhD student working under the supervision of Prof. William Odom. With great interests in interaction design, she joined the Everyday Design Studio in August 2017. Her research focuses on the slow interaction design, temporality, and experiential quality. Recent activities include in-depth observations on how slow messaging systems enrich the communication experience and the possibilities of tangible interaction design in technology-mediated everyday practices.

Before entering SFU, Amy received her academic training and achievements in Spatial Media Lab at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology and Computer Graphics and Vision Lab at National Tsing Hua University. The two-year industrial experience as a hybrid of UI/UX designer and iOS app developer in well-known start-ups also granted her not only the strong social network with professionals in Taiwan but the desire to explore the world in a totally different perspective.
