Creative, collaborative qualitative researcher.
Focused on the details with an eye for the bigger picture. Let’s solve problems together.
A researcher, writer, social scientist, and photographer, I mix the applied and the academic. I combine the tools I have available to help understand and analyze problems in order to develop workable solutions.These days I'm at Automatic, where I'm lucky enough to be the Researcher. Before this I was at Mule Design Studio, where I was both Researcher and co-host of Let's Make Mistakes. Prior to all this, I wrote a dissertation on the practices and culture of clinicians with respect to the adoption of electronic health records (EHR). Speaking of writing, you can read that here, here, here, and here.
A sociologist and ethnographer by training,
I am dedicated to examining how people connect and how they use technology in context. This knowledge can help us build better, more sustainable systems. At the heart of my work is a fascination with culture, social interaction, change, and technology.
