Design Researcher with a knack for getting hands-on

Hi! Glad to see you made it to my website. I’m a master student at the department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology in the direction of constructive design research, with a focus on tackling complex societal topics by diving into context and generating relevant knowledge through design interventions.

I’m skilled in taking action on wicked problems, crafting prototypes, electronics, facilitation, project management. At the moment I’m working an internship at RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) in the department of societal transformation in the city of Umeå.

I’m always down to have a chat, reach out to me if you feel the same!
