Hi, I'm Jialin Deng (鄧 佳琳)

Jialin Deng is a Ph.D. candidate in Human-Centred Computing at Monash University and an active researcher and designer in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Her research is centred on exploring the future of radical interfaces known for their programmability, reconfigurability, and consumability. By intersecting computer science, gastrophysics, and interaction design, Jialin aspires to spark innovations across interdisciplinary domains including multisensory interaction, embodied computing, and eatable interfaces.

Previously, Jialin's practice was involved in the creative industries, intertwining media arts, visual communication, food, and experience design. She holds an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts Studies from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and a master's degree in Narrative Environments from the University of the Arts, London. Her works have been featured at the London Design Festival, and caught the attention of leading media outlets such as FRAME, Forbes, and ABC Radio National. Jialin has been invited to speak at several prominent events, including the London Design Festival 2015, TEDxGuangzhou (2019), the Dagstuhl Seminar (Eat-IT) in Germany (2022), and CHI-Melbourne (2022).
