Hasti Seifi

Hasti is interested in design and evaluation of tactile sensations, interfaces and new interactions based on the sense of touch. The objective of her PhD research is to empower ordinary users, having no previous design knowledge, to design or customize vibrotactile feedback for their needs. 

To this end, she investigates:

  • Perception of tactile sensations,
  • Tactile customization tools, and workflows,
  • Effective evaluation methodologies for tactile sensations.

She received her Masters degree from the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University in 2010 and her Bachelor's degree from University of Tehran in 2008.
