Hello, I am Angela. A research lover,
a system thinker
and a strategist.

Skills

  • User Research

    Based on qualitative research methods I support teams to structure research processes, transform data into valuable user insights and communicate them to multidisciplinary teams.

  • Creative facilitation

    I lead co-creative work sessions for research, ideation, and synthesis with teams and various stakeholders. I apply service design, design thinking and agile methods to help teams deliver faster and more efficiently.

  • Social Impact

    By understanding design as a tool for social transformation, I evaluate the impact that solutions are having on the communities I work with. I reflect and iterate on practices, methodologies, and personal mindsets.

As a creative facilitator, I rely on Post-its to visualize collective thinking. I empower teams to be concise and precise in their ideas when working together. I carefully plan every step of the workshop in my Moleskine dotted paper book and spark my creativity while listening to Chopin.
