As an academic and researcher, I am interested in fostering creative and critical thinking and providing design thinking opportunities in building innovative business entrepreneurship.
Working with education industry across disciplinary borders between business and design. In my PhD, I teach across various disciplines such as Communication Design, Business (Design Major), Product Design and Business Information Systems.
Research area includes using UCD in interface design process, bring innovativeness using design thinking for developing Business Strategies (Process, concepts, models), developing design methodologies for innovation and creativity, creating interactive publication using HCI principles and Merchandising and Branding. Experience in wider area provides a richer experience to work on a project.
