Hello! I'm a graduate student in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, and I'm now an interdisciplinary designer!

While studying and working at MAID, working with multidisciplinary teams and individual artists has helped me to further reshape my ideas about the value of design. My work focuses on the complex impact of sustainable design, critical design and co-design on organismic societies. I have been experimenting with exploratory research methods and look forward to further investigating the possibilities for more multifaceted developments within the trend towards human-centered design.
