 Master's Thesis

Transcending Blue

Adolescent Interconnection & Empathy in the Age of Screens

A year long exploration of how technology can be leveraged positively to benefit adolescent mental health care. My thesis explores how to support adolescents' journeys into adulthood through multiple avenues—from the everyday to the clinical. To do so, I designed across the phygital spectrum, taking into account the merging of the digital and physical worlds in current culture and society, recognizing the importance of both.
