I’m a Masters Candidate in Stanford’s Design program, with a focus on using human-centered design principles to create healthcare products and services. I’m currently researching in the Human Computer Interaction(HCI) group under James Landay on building physical and digital adaptations to enhance sustainability and well-being, and also on developing technology for modelling and predicting individualized pain patterns in everyday life.
This past summer, I interned as a User Researcher at Verily Life Sciences on building a care pathway to efficiently identify, diagnose, treat and manage individuals with sleep apnea.
Before this,I worked in the information, communication and technology for development (ICTD) space in West Africa, particularly in Sierra Leone and Liberia on projects in the healthcare, open government and financial inclusion sectors. I was also the Country Manager for Code for Sierra Leone, a civic tech organization that uses open source technology to improve the delivery of services in the public sector.
