Design, Insights

New York

I am a design strategist who employs design research methods to empathize with both customers and stakeholders, drawing insights that help organizations advance their innovation strategy. With a background spanning engineering, product development, and user research, I believe an integrated multi-disciplinary approach is critical to impactful innovation.

After earning a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, I worked as a mechanical designer in consumer electronics and a manufacturing engineer in medical devices. With a growing desire for opportunities for creative expression and to drive more impactful decisions, I pursued my master’s degree in a program focused on the intersection of design and tech with business strategy. While on projects in healthcare, sustainability, IoT, and financial tech, I discovered the value of human research to drive innovation by uncovering unserved needs.
