With a passion for application of Neuroscience in architecture and design, human-based research has become the foundation of my work. It is an interest I developed during my final academic year and plan to invest in throughout my career. A good design will always have an effect on how the user or viewer feels and controlling that feeling is what makes a great designer. The more understanding we have of how the brain works, the more effective our human-based design decisions become and that is what I’d like to achieve by the end of this career path; whether it’d be in the interior design, architecture, product design or the movie industry.
