My empathetic nature allows me to take complex systems of actors and grasp why, how, and what comes next. I also have a strong grounding in design which allows me to make things happen. I particularly get excited by health, wellbeing and public projects.
I have worked with a number of large clients to design and execute research pertaining to medical devices and services, particularly while at Worrell. I am experienced in every step of the process from defining a scope of work, recruiting participants, creating materials for creative and productive interviews, and conducting ethnographic observations, and translating those insights into recommendations. I have also spent time on humans factors projects, validating products, IFUs, and web design.
