Yan Feng (Francie) is a PhD researcher in i-DAT on the CODEX International Postgraduate Research Network. Her research explores the influence of emotions evoked by design factors on the user’s engagement with wearable devices. The research is aimed at employing more subjective practice-based methods to capture users’ emotional response to create innovative emotive wearable devices. It investigates whether interface design can affect the users’ intention to engage with wearables in three phases:

  • Phase I: How the symmetry and complexity of the interface design factors affect users’ emotional responses.
  • Phase II: How the user’s quality perception is used as a mediator to analyze the influence of the emotions evoked by the interface design factors.
  • Phase III: How the continued use of design factors is conducive to resolving some environment problems caused by the consumer smart wearable products.
