Yu-Ting Cheng is a double PhD candidate between Industrial Design in TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) and NTUST (National Taiwan University of Science and Technology). She focuses on developing design fiction and speculative design related methods in order to studying the emerging future. She had worked in the NTU IoX Center in Taiwan to support the research teams to envision future scenarios for their technologies. Some of her works tried to deploy fictional objects into the field to probe users' behaviours. (Please see Wearable R.I.P on Core77.) She is also an avid blogger, sharing her thoughts in Speculatizen to introduce design fiction to the Chinese community. Her current researches are (1) Designing data privacy for Internet of Things, (2) Studying user's intention through observing traces of things, (3) Studying Sci-fi Movies to speculate new interface possibilities for the intelligent agents.
