I am a context-driven designer who combines empathy with evidence-based innovation to create a better world for those who need it most.
I just graduated from a dual-degree program called Global Innovation Design, between Royal College of Art (MA) and Imperial College London (MSc with merit), where classes are separated by terms in London, Tokyo, and New York. Over the past two years, I have been able to work on projects that combine service design, product design, and holistic stakeholder research for cross-cultural issues. Previously, I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Industrial Design.
My professional and personal interests lie within user-centered systems, strategy, healthcare + medical design, visual communication, and social impact. I am comfortable working on projects that require creativity, systems-level critical thinking, and resilience to challenging situations. Whether I am a team player or a team leader, I value the thoughtful integration of diverse perspectives to pursue a shared vision. I’m continuing to expand my skill sets through professional opportunities that are at the intersection of design, science, aesthetics, and research.
