I'm interested in combining the latest research in smart house design with the latest research in medicine to produce houses that can prolong and improve the lives of users. Among these fields of medicine are vibrational, biofeedback, and air quality control, combined with robotics and algorithmic programming to produce interactive houses that care for their residents.
