Asta Roseway is a Research Designer, at Microsoft Research, whose work focuses around Human Computing Interaction (HCI), Affective Computing, and wearable technologies. Roseway’s highly regarded ‘Printing Dress’ (ISWC 2011 Expo winner), is a combination of fashion and technology designed to provoke questions around wearable displays, privacy, and social impact. She continues to explore these questions but more specifically focuses on experiences within the health and wellness sector. Asta is one of the co-founders of studio99, a Microsoft Research effort designed to bring Art and Technology practices closer together.
She is a Parsons School of Design alumni.
