"“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”"

As a researcher, I am interested in collaboration, socio-material practices, culture and space. I teach design thinking, organizational behavior and qualitative methods. I discovered OpenIDEO as I started working in fall 2010 on a research project on open innovation and since then have participated in multiple challenges, and keep coming back!

I have my own spin on Picasso’s quip that “everything you imagine is real", I firmly believe in the good karma and the coincidences in life. ヅ
