The user-centered studies needed for an in-depth understanding of the extensive and perpetually developing interaction design field highlight my goal to pursue MFA program in Umeå Institute of Design. Enthusiastically, I am keen to work under the mentoring of the distinguished faculty members such as Prof. Niklas Andersson, particularly in topics such as human-computer interaction and experience prototyping. I am sure that the facilities in Umeå Institute of Design will be auxiliary for a dedicated involvement in research
