She began at the Wyss as a visiting graduate student in 2013. During this time, her work focused on integrating human factors and apparel design in order to translate soft wearable exosuit concepts into textile based designs. Wagner is interested in soft goods, textiles, and materials development for wearable assistive devices. She received a BFA in Sculpture and Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University and her Masters of Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
