Rakesh Patibanda: Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Expert, Researcher, and Designer

I’m an experienced HCI professional specializing in human-centered research, design, and technology development. My goal is to create compelling products that solve real user problems.

With over a decade of experience, I’ve designed playful technologies and gamified health platforms. I’m a passionate advocate for user-centric design and leverage cutting-edge methods to meet user needs.

Currently, I’m a PhD candidate at the Exertion Games Lab, Monash University (mentored by Prof. Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller and Prof. Elise van den Hoven). My research explores how play, technology, and our bodies work together. I’m particularly interested in shared bodily control in technologies like exoskeletons and AI – this work will shape the future of game and interaction design.

I hold a Master of Design by Research from RMIT University.
