Hello. This is Kate.
I am a social design researcher.
I am passionate about learning from people. For me, being a design researcher means fostering empathy, surfacing stories and making sense of what is learned. Design is an interventionist discipline and, for better or worse, seeks to make change. The goal of good research is to be able to make change informed by people's needs, desires and experiences. My strength is taking on complex, challenging subject matters and facilitating connections and understanding. I design opportunities for engagement and awareness like this, this, and this. My current research is focused on Equity + Design.
