Her work is focused on structure, geometry and playfulness, as she stated on her site.

“Besides these graphical artworks, I’m interested in creating novel, tangible interfaces. My research focuses on the cultural aspect of the interface, on the space between the human and the machine. I’m is interested in exploring the affect of what certain interactions and interfaces have, both on the human and the machine. I want to create interactive installations that engage the user in playful ways to let them explore the machine and see the technology we are using daily in a different way.”, she explains.
