  • 2. personal statement “From many years of use, I have noticed that visual representations of this type are effective to engage people into discussion and reflection. Hence, I found myself fascinated with the idea of exploring and exploiting these representations, known as schemas, particularly in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, as support for the design process.” • Drawing • Visual representations, Mathematics and Software Engineering. • Analysis and synthesis. •intellectual merit: Connection from teaching, practice and research. • broader impacts criteria: human-centered approach for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from university education to practice.
