Mei-Chun Liu 劉美均
Meichun Liu is a 3rd year Ph.D. student in design at North Carolina State University and a Fulbright Graduate Study Grant recipient. She received her bachelor's degree in Taiwan and master's degrees in Canada, both in industrial design, and founded her design firm Wolkeland Design in 2010. As a design practitioner over the last 18 years and professor for 6 years, Meichun has worked on numerous projects, mostly IT products but also a number of handicraft-inspired designs. Her research interests lie in the area of adaptive design and augmented artifacts in a complex system. Emergent technologies have created a new genre of artifacts that blur the boundaries between physical and digital, thereby generating design opportunities across disciplinary boundaries and new types of human-machine interaction. Her research adopts the approach of ABMS to study the emergent behaviors of agents in a complex system.
