Design research helps me connect key drivers of stakeholders with the context and each other, orienting myself in the domain. Design always has agents, users, people it impacts. Bringing in methods from positive psychology helps inform the motive hierarchies of the people involved to understand priorities, tradeoffs and dilemmas in the context at hand. 

My multidisciplinary background creates an extensive base to draw from as a starting point, but I believe the true impact of research lies in how and with whom the information is communicated. I place great care in how I analyze and present my findings, such as in data visualizations, metaphors, analogies, collages or stories that reflect the context. 

Methods I prefer: interviews, observation, autoethnography, cultural probes, contextmapping, rituals, lifestyle research, clustering, journey maps

Prototyping holds a critical place in my design process to realize ideas rapidly to weigh their feasibility, viability and desirability. For me, prototypes often serve as probes that express different dimensions of the concept at hand. Prototypes built to the fitting fidelity serve as practical tools for conducting usability tests or inform the mechanical properties and behavior of the design. Ultimately, prototyping is not about the act of building, it’s about building the correct artifact to answer the pressing questions that enable the design to move to the next stage. With experience in a wide range of prototyping methods, my strength lies in quickly finding the right match between the questions and the best ways to answer them.

 Often use:  programmed and manual machining, Arduino sensor integration, casting, injection molding, composites manufacturing, 3D printing, lasercutting, screenprinting, knitting, embroidery, crochet...
