“Maybe the true purpose of my life is for my body, my sensations and my thoughts to become writing, in other words, something intelligible and universal, causing my existence to merge into the lives and heads of other people.”
― Annie Ernaux, French writer, professor of literature, and Nobel laureate 2022 ( Happening).

Abstract

This website is the design part of Freud Oulon Interactive Qualifying Project at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), completed in May 2022. The explicit purpose of the project was to build a website to attract youth in the STEM fields while disseminating the work done at the Center for Wireless Information Network Studies (CWINS), WPI. The implicit purpose is to learn the process of making a web biography, as opposed to a traditional written biography; a web biography narrates a story through multimedia content while a written biography emphasizes on a verbal narrative. The subject of the biography is Kaveh Pahlavan , a professor of ECE/CS and the founder of CWINS, established in 1985 as the first academic research laboratory in wireless local area networks, commercially known as Wi-Fi [1]. The project report, which contains the rationale for the various design decisions and general remarks on the demands of web biography, can be found here.
