Hi! I'm Nur 👋

I’m a third year PhD student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I'm advised by John Zimmerman and James McCann. My work is generously supported by research grants from the National Science Foundation and Accenture Technology Labs.
My research focuses on (1) designing human-AI interactions for real-world contexts, and (2) empowering UX designers to envision and prototype human-AI interactions. I develop tools, methods and processes for design practitioners to innovate with AI as part of their daily practices. My broader goal is to enable collaboration and participation across disciplines and stakeholders in AI development processes.
Before Carnegie Mellon, I worked as an industrial designer for 7+ years in the industry, designing products ranging from medical to consumer electronics, assistive robots, and transportation. My work supported the R&D processes of clients across scales, resulting in 25+ shipped products, several patents and design awards.
