My name is Alisa Goikhman. I am a UX designer and design researcher. My work focuses mainly on users, and sometimes on machines. I explore the meeting point of Human-Computer Interaction, language and Cognitive Science, with special interest in tangible and embodied interaction.

    I currently work at the Future Center Europe where I investigate the future of mobility, trying to come up with just and sustainable solutions for our near future. I was a 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, at the Bezalel Academy and the Interaction Lab at Holon Institute of Technology.
    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. For collaborations, inquiries or for my full CV and offline portfolio, please get in touch. alisagoikhman:gmail.
