Joanna Berzowska is the founder and research director of XS Labs, a design research studio that develops innovative methods and applications in electronic textiles and responsive garments. She is Associate Professor of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University and a member of the Hexagram Research Institute in Montreal. She lectures and consults internationally about the field of electronic textiles and related social, cultural, aesthetic, and political issues. Her art and design work has been shown in the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in NYC, the V&A in London, the Millenium Museum in Beijing, SIGGRAPH, ISEA, the Art Directors Club in NYC, the Australian Museum in Sydney, NTT ICC in Tokyo, and Ars Electronica Center in Linz among others. Her research is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Heritage, Hexagram Institute for Research/Creation in Media Arts and Technologies, and the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC). She was recently selected for the Maclean\'s 2006 Honour Roll as one of \"thirty nine Canadians who make the world a better place to live in\".
