Sumaiyah Shihipar

2018-Present

I am an undergraduate student studying mechanical engineering and a research assistant here at SynLab. I am working on linking human computer interaction with spatial awareness using telepresence robots. For the project RE/Portal, I have worked in different areas, from hardware, to creating software, to designing in CAD, to running participant studies. My research interests primarily revolve around experimenting with different electronic devices with a focus on human factors and ergonomics, such as adding haptics to devices. I also really enjoy playing cricket and watching college football!
