Ramyah Gowrishankar

Ramyah joined the Design Research Lab as a PhD student in August 2015 in the ArcinTex ETN project. Her research interest lies in exploring Tangible Interaction Design for e-Textiles and she is curious about the possibilities presented by textiles for re-shaping our interactions and understanding of the digital.
