Meet the fellows
I am a Product & Conversational Designer, with a background in Biomedical Sciences. I started as a generalist in a Technology Consulting role, and have navigated a variety of different technology roles before landing on Product/Conversational Design. I am particularly passionate about Inclusive Design, AI, and thinking of new ideas!
I am a UX/UI designer that is currently freelancing. My background is mostly creative as well as retail, public services and concessions but I was lucky enough to find my real passion in UX/UI. I thoroughly enjoy user research, wireframing and watching my designs come to life!
