My full name is above 👆🏿 but you can call me Simeon.
I am passionate about developing interdisciplinary approaches for using technology (e.g., robotics, computing) for social interactions (e.g., learning, well-being). Over the last decade, I have conducted research in multiple fields including robotics, strategic foresight, Space, the Maker Movement in Africa, and technology for the arts.
Notably, my work has focused on robot design/hacking for use in fall detection and low-cost stem education; and multidisciplinary applications of technologies such as computer vision to mixed-reality-based learning and storytelling.
I have also worked at all levels of applied research from design through development, testing, implementation, all the way to deployment(small and large-scale) and outreach often following a systems approach.
Some of my projects and activities can be seen on My Portfolio and My CV.
