I'm currently designing for the future of digital medical technology at Johnson & Johnson as a UX Designer co-op.
Technology should enable people to make informed decisions about their own health, provide actionable insights through data, and ultimately lead to better outcomes. The future of healthcare is digital, and it's our responsibility to exceed current delivery of care expectations, empower the patient, and bring a little (!) to the mundane moments. In my current role at Johnson & Johnson, I've been able to work towards this future by designing patient-facing and HCP-facing mobile applications, robotic surgical interfaces, and software that streamlines the surgeon's workflow.
Recently, I co-authored a white paper that influenced Chinese hospital construction during the pandemic
While researching healthcare worker safety at SimTigrate Design Lab, my team and I released a white paper detailing the optimal layout of biocontainment unit doffing rooms (the rooms where healthcare workers take off their PPE). This work was informed by many interviews, co-design sessions, and observations with healthcare workers operating in serious communicable disease wards.
My master's thesis is exploring the brain tumor patient experience
The beginnings of the brain tumor patient experience are marked by an influx of unfamiliar medical jargon, fragmented healthcare teams, and a drastic decline in quality of life. Project Aether identifies key opportunities to mitigate some of the loss of life and act as the patient’s advocate during their care journey.
