Invited talk: Technologies for mindfulness practices, Computational Media, University of California Santa Cruz

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This talk provides an overview of my work on technologies for mindfulness, with an emphasis on the value the human body in mindfulness practices. It outlines award winning research described in Taylor and Francis HCI journal, CHI and DIS publications targeting focused attention through both sitting and movement-based meditation. It outlines several prototypes designed and evaluated with my research group such as MeditAid, WarmMind, Anima, and explorations of bodily experience during different meditation practices including the one of mandala coloring. The talk articulates the value of this body of work for novel design implications for mindfulness technologies. Most of the research described in the talk has been supported by the AffecTech: Personal technologies for affective health, an EC-funded Innovative Training Network.
