My name is Alisa Goikhman. I am a interaction designer and design researcher. My work focuses mainly on users, and sometimes on machines (UI/UX). I explore the meeting point of Human-Computer Interaction, Lexicography and Cognitive Science, with special interest in tangible and embodied interaction. I received my MA from the Berlin University of the Arts and BA from visual communications dept. at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. I currently work at the Future Center Europe. I was a guest researcher at The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH) and collaborated with University of Salamanca. I also was a guest lecturer at Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin and worked as a T.A. at the Bezalel Academy and the Interaction Lab at Holon Institute of Technology. For collaborations, inquiries or for my full CV and offline portfolio, please get in touch. alisagoikhman:gmail.
