About me

My particular interests are empathy, social interaction, and the rapid changes in society driven by technology, science and culture. My ambition is to improve, foster and enhance our interactions with others, as well as with products and systems. I have worked on projects in six countries and in collaboration with school teachers, medical researchers, a social care charity, and an organisation for the elderly, as well as organisations including the Fraunhofer Institute, Carbon Trust, Volkswagen and the Design Museum. These experiences and my time studying abroad allowed me to develop a global perspective on human behaviour, which I use to identify challenging opportunities and as inspiration for forward thinking solutions.
