I'm a senior at 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'm currently working on my senior thesis project in which I am developing a justice-oriented design methodology based on feminist theory. The second half of my thesis involves working with local communities to apply these methods to a digital platform revolving around mutual aid practices.
ABOUT MY MAJOR
I've had the unique opportunity to design my own major, and have chosen to create a holistic program in Interaction Design. My program focuses on practice as well as theory, where I've 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 break down into three categories: Aesthetic Design (studio art, design theory); Technology (computer science, engineering); and the Human Experience (sociology, anthropology, psychology).
