I am currently a freelance designer and researcher, with a passion for applying human-centered design to local and global development. I have previously worked for SAP and the World Bank, serving Fortune 500 clients, government entities, and non-profits such as Internews, Bread for the City, Safe Horizon, and Democracy Works on topics ranging from financial inclusion and consumer protection, to healthcare, and civil and human rights.

 

In my spare time, you will find me volunteering as a teacher, a translator, or a crisis mapper. Most recently, I co-founded Design Gigs for Good, a job board for opportunities at the intersection of design and social impact. I am a graduate of Sciences Po Paris where I studied International Business and Middle Eastern and Mediterranean Affairs. I also studied design innovation at the Paris Est d.school and User Experience design at General Assembly.

 

I serve on the Board of Directors of SIMLab, an awesome organization striving to make technology work for everyone.
