MA. Li, X.

Xueliang Li is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering exploring smart wearables design to help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to deal with stress in everyday contexts.

Xueliang’s PhD focuses on designing smart wearables to help people, in particular veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to deal with stress in everyday contexts. During his PhD, he works with an interdisciplinary team across domains of computer science, electronic engineering, mental healthcare, fashion design, and interaction design. Based on his PhD research, he has extended his interest in the topics of design for mental health and subjective wellbeing, and designing everyday objects as intelligent agents that provide care and companionship. Trained as a designer and having grown to be a design researcher, Xueliang has adopted a research-through-design approach as a way to pursue research goals through design activities and initiate collaboration with people from different disciplines.
