Following the completion of her BFA with a focus in Japanese Traditional Painting at the University of Tsukuba’s School of Fine Arts and Design in 2023, Jackie advanced to the University of Tsukuba’s Graduate program in Informatics, where she is currently a 1st year Master’s student. Her research focuses on the implementation of affective technologies such as VR and AR as a method for boosting human cognition. Jackie’s keen interest in the possibilities of visual media as applied and analyzed in affective computing led her to proactively pursue this field of research from her time as a Bachelor’s student. Jackie’s hobbies include writing manga, enjoying great cinema and literature, and exploring Japan’s temples, shrines, and retro cafes.
