This is me

I conduct research to drive innovation and inform product and content strategy. My background in behavioral science and user research has given me a deep understanding of how people think and behave, allowing me to conduct rigorous studies that uncover insights into user behavior and needs and deliver compelling stories to inform strategy.

 

Working in both public and private sectors, I lead cross-functional teams from the fuzzy front end of innovation development all the way through to usability testing and outcome evaluation. I care deeply about developing evidence-based theory driven experiences that improve people's lives.
