"Small acts matter. Collectively, these small acts can change the world."
My background is in engineering, product design, and design theory and methods. I am a PhD candidate, and I study the role of prototyping on design teams. I strive to create social impact in the world through design innovation. I started a Design for America studio at the CU Boulder campus to encourage students to learn the principles of human-centered design, and for these students to solve real problems in our local community. I am extremely passionate about design thinking can be applied to solving the multitude of complex social problems in our world.
