I DO User Experience Research & Design for Life Science

I am a freelance consultant delivering tailored “Gamestorming”-style workshops, focus groups, brainstorming & graphic recording (aka sketchnoting). I train others in UX, workshop facilitation methods and sketchnoting.  I was previously the Lead User Experience Architect at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) near Cambridge, UK.  I love science, creativity and get curious when I don’t understand things.
