In my first conference talk, which happened in January 2016 at the Connected Communities Heritage Network.
The research I presented was on the approaches to the user experience design using the study of the current Augmented Reality landscape as the focal point. This presentation was also about user-centred thinking, its challenges and further Research & Development opportunities within not only Augmented Reality but also the area of user experience itself.
Connected Communities is a "cross-Research Council programme led by AHRC, designed to help us understand the changing nature of communities in their historical and cultural contexts and the role of communities in sustaining and enhancing our quality of life."
Today I completed my first assignment learning Python, which evolved around filling out the gaps in the story by prompting the user to contribute.
The aim of the workshop was to implement various techniques from design practice to address issues in social care, civil engineering and finance. A prominent approach on the day was the Double Diamond process.

It was been a pleasure to take part in a workshop on museum and gallery visiting empowered by technology and the concept of gift-giving.
The workshop was led by Lesley Fosh -
a PhD candidate in the Mixed Reality Lab and Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Nottingham, whose research looks at the design of mobile visiting experiences for museums and art galleries ( both personalised and supportive of group visiting), combining human-computer interaction with museum studies.
Teamed with several arts and business professionals (the Creative Quarter, University of Nottingham, New Art Exchange, Nottingham Castle), various problem-solving, concept and business development activities constituted the day.
In March I was asked to support a wonderful event Offspring Photomeet, which provides a platform for photographers to showcase their work, get reviewed by professional editors and artists, meet new collaborators and learn. Photomeet is a great initiative by photography professionals in London to nurture links in the industry and beyond.
