I’m a design researcher and interaction designer.

I lead the talented team of The Studio at Zalando, Europe’s leading online fashion platform.

Previously, I led product design & research at N26. I’ve worked in strategic design consulting with IDEO, user experience design at Nokia, design for healthcare in the development sector, and a few other places.

In December 2020, Alex & Christian from the Product Bakery podcast invited me on their show to talk about the role of design & research ops and building a healthy impactful design team. 

In June 2019, I spoke about how designing for research is kinda different at the UXR Conference in Toronto. 

I teach People-centered Research at CIID’s Summer School, most recently in Tokyo, Japan and Copenhagen, Denmark.

I write occasionally; but not as much as I want to.

‘Pay it forward’ is pro bono support I provide to organisations working towards creating positive social impact. In 2021, I will be focussing on early stage startups, especially those with female founders.
