I’m an evidence-based designer working towards a more just and sustainable world.

I’m currently a Service and Intervention Designer with The Policy Lab at Brown University and an Academic Affiliate with the Office of Evaluation Sciences in the General Services Administration.

Not all of my recent work is publicly available at the moment. In the meantime, here are links to a selection of externally published case studies for projects I’ve completed with both organizations.

The Office of Evaluation Sciences

The Policy Lab at Brown University

Conducting design research to support the COVID-19 testing experience

I’m also working on how to get designers more involved in climate solutions.

Designers are in a unique position to support climate mitigation and adaptation by helping implement and scale evidence-based solutions. I’ve mentored for CleanTeach Open Northeast, served as a chapter lead for Climate Designers, and am always on the lookout for more climate-related collaborations.

Celebrating Boston’s Climate Action Plan

In the past, I designed digital health and financial wellness interventions in the private sector.

I’ve had the fortune of working on various projects at the intersection of behavioral science and design. Here are a few representative selections from my time as a Behavior Change Designer at Mad*Pow.

I also teach about integrating evidence and design.

Design and science play well together. Here are some presentations I’ve (co)developed to help designers apply methods and evidence from behavioral science throughout the design process.
