I conduct mixed-methods research for social impact technology and design projects. Whether it’s centering marginalized voices for a breast pump hackathon, customizing games with NGO’s for public engagement, or customer journey mapping a cancer diagnostic testing experience- I am driven by a focus on empathy.
I use my skills design research, project management, partnership development, and workshop facilitation to improve healthcare and democracy. I have spent 4+ years wearing many hats: producing games, writing reports, and building networks for the social good while working at the Engagement Lab at Emerson College. My collaborators have included: the United Way, Greenpeace, the Participatory Budgeting Project, and and the Office of Science and Technology Policy under the Obama Administration. Recently, I am working on research and strategy with a dynamic design and development team to improve cancer genomic testing at Foundation Medicine.
