Born in Japan and raised in Peru, I am a mix between Japanese traditions and Latin American flavor. As a Kansei Designer and Mechatronic Engineer, I combine arts and engineering to study how we interact with our surroundings to create devices and robots that are pleasant to use.
Kansei (感性) is a Japanese word with a complex meaning that is difficult to translate in one word. It refers to human sensitivity, subjectivity, emotions, feelings, and the essence of the human experience. In simple terms, we try to understand how we experience life with the aid of Psychology, Neuroscience, Behavioral Science, and Arts.
Mechatronics is an area of engineering that combines Mechanics, Electronics, and Computer Sciences. Basically, we know how to automate processes and create machines and robots.
