UX Designer and Researcher working in Civic Technology and Accessibility
I am a Civic Tech Researcher specializing in designing medical and assistive technology for governments and citizens in the Global South.
I have conducted interview and survey studies to understand how governments, NGOs and citizens collaborate to build technology (e.g., 3D printed asssitive hands). I then use this knowledge to design innovative tech and solutions that empower citizens and governments to better collaborate and build their desired societies.
