The LAB is a synthesis of my past experiences with design technologies and current methodological inquiries, has led to the establishment of the User Experience Product Development Lab! And officially, it has one project under it's belt!
Through design driven research & development and collaboration with end-users, this research lab utilizes the potential of today's advanced apparel technologies to create commercially viable, culturally relevant, and socially valuable apparel products. My vision for the lab is to be a platform for scholars and designers to foster short-term single-product based projects lasting an academic semester to one year. And to foster advanced development projects that span two to three years. Extended outreach aims to actively collaborate with other departments within the university as well as with other industries, companies, researchers, and experts.
