Hi, I'm Claire!

I'm a design researcher and strategist with a background in human-centered design, engineering, and product development research. I bring design thinking expertise, technical understanding and critical analysis, and love for hands-on work and experimentation to any project I undertake. As a former national-caliber track-and-field and cross-country athlete, a strong team-player ethos and a learning mindset are important to me in all work that I do.

My expertise includes resourceful, rapid prototyping for digital products as well as physical products such as surgical devices, facilitating design workshops, conducting interviews and usability tests, and designing in-depth research plans and experiments. I enjoy co-creating with users, hands-on prototyping, and translating abstract problems into specific needs and useful designs.
