Despite of the increase in its popularity, research on Self-Transcendence in HCI field is scarce. In this project, our team explored how we could design to understand the ST experience.

Our project was accepted and presented at the Student Research Competition held by the CHI conference. CHI is a series of academic conferences that is generally considered “the most prestigious in the field of human–computer interaction” (source).

In the following summer 2017, I continued working on a related research for an upcoming conference. The new paper is currently under review.

Date: November 2016 — January 2017
