Tangible Programming On Paper With Circuit Stickers 

Collaborated with Jie Qi to develop code stickers, programming construction kit that blends the functionality of programming with the materiality of paper craft. The kit is made of circuit sticker electronic modules with inputs and outputs that are connected together with conductive tapes to create computational systems.  Co-authored Code Collage: Tangible Programming on Paper with Code Stickers with Jie Qi. In Proceedings 
of the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems.

Research and exploration of Chibitronics Circuit Stickers applications 

Made a sketchbook with circuit stickers to explore the range in interactivity electronics add to visual art. These works bring together a little bit of coding, drawing, scrapping and lots of copper tape to create unusual paper artwork.
