I am passionate about applying my creativity and analytical thinking to solve complex problems. As a former chess player, I relate design strategy to the chessboard; to solve problems that confront all logic. I am inspired to dream up new and improved ways of problem-solving. I aim to use design and behavior change principles to better address social inequities and drive sustainable community change.
My attention is largely focused on the world around me, and constantly exploring its structure and systems to find ways to bring justice and solutions forward. I see everything through the lens of possibilities and progress, problems and solutions.
My experience of working with marginalized communities over the last 5 years at Noora Health and through the ‘MA focusing on Design in Health Program’ at the University of Texas (Austin), has allowed me to focus on community health, behaviour change, and using design thinking to better address key social gaps in communities for sustainable change and better health outcomes.
