Greetings! I'm a researcher in computer science. I explore how physiological computing can contribute to human-computer interaction and foster new communication channels among the general public. I came to think that the purpose of those technological artifacts is to enhance well being and facilitate human relationships on the whole. Or at least this is the path into which I try to venture, hacking my way.
