I'm a recent graduate of Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT who's passionate about design. My greatest interests lie in UI/UX, product, and critical approaches to design processes.
I've recently completed my senior thesis project where I developed a justice-oriented design methodology based on feminist theory. The second half of my thesis involved working with local communities to apply these methods to a digital platform revolving around mutual aid practices.
ABOUT MY MAJOR
I had the unique opportunity to design my own major, and chose to create a holistic program in Interaction Design. My program focused on practice as well as theory, where I placed the ethics of technology at the forefront. My goal is to adopt an approach to design that addresses pressing needs in the world with outcomes that uplift, not oppress.
My courses broke down into three categories: Aesthetic Design (studio art, design theory); Technology (computer science, engineering); and the Human Experience (sociology, anthropology, psychology).
I'm also have a minor in Integrated Design, Engineering, and Applied Science (IDEAS).
