Hi, I'm Jialin Deng (鄧 佳琳)

Jialin Deng is a researcher, designer and art practitioner who's pursuing her Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Monash University, Australia. Her research is centred on exploring the future of radical interfaces that are comestible and computable . By blending art, science, gastrophysics, and interaction design, Jialin aspires to spark innovations across interdisciplinary domains including multisensory interaction and material computing.

Jialin's practice has been involved in the creative industries, intersecting media arts and interactive technologies. 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, Science Gallery Melbourne, and leading media outlets such as FRAME, Forbes, Dezeen, and ABC Radio National.
