A Little about me

Hello! I am Nina Sakhnini. I am a Computer Engineer, a researcher and a Computer Science graduate student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My research interest is in Human-Computer Interaction. I am currently working on my thesis project titled “Walking the talk: Generating memory cues to help people with dementia in everyday conversations” this project explores designing a proactive aid for people with mild to moderate Dementia under the supervision and direction of professor Debaleena Chattopadhyay at the Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCI Lab) and the Electronic Visualization Lab (EVL).

I am 23 years old. I am a dreamer, I love things with the letter “C”: Cats, Computers, Chocolate, Chicago, Creativity, and Curly-hair. I am living in Oak Lawn, IL with my beloved family.
If I am not talking a lot, it’s because I am a little of a shy person. My type of the 16-personalities is INFP (Healer or Mediator).

Life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about CREATING yourself.
