I love to work on design projects. I love to facilitate UX workshops for professional teams who need to refocus. And I love to teach on degree level courses.
My curiosity about design fundamentally stems from curiosity about human nature and how we interact with the world. As an alumna at Durham University, my research projects centred on media, culture, and identity.
Thanks to a lot of hard work, I earned a First Class BA in Philosophy ⚖, French 🇫🇷 and Spanish 🇪🇸 (with distinctions in both spoken languages). So I'm pretty good at critical thinking and communicating.
Now at the Royal College of Art, my Masters in Research involves rethinking design, using the practical philosophy of yoga for inspiration.
Why yoga? Well, the mind-body practice has been helping people worldwide to live more consciously for thousands of years. In the West we tend to emphasise the physical aspects of yoga, which is just the tip of the iceberg. As a part-time yoga teacher, I believe that ethical and metaphysical aspects of yoga could inform a unique approach to interaction design that is exceptionally creative and mindful.
