As an independent researcher, educator and consultant, I act as the users' advocate in digital product and service design processes - for truly people-centered technology.

Building on a unique perspective between social sciences and design, I utilize approaches and methods that integrate often neglected aspects like social use experience, life context or privacy with traditional user-centered design thinking. After all, interaction design is social science.
