Hi! I am the the creator of the <Design Ethically> project, which explores how product teams can implement ethical practices in their day-to-day process. I am currently based in Stockholm, working in tech as a senior product designer. On the side, I am also a Masters student at the University of Cambridge, researching AI Ethics with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence.

My work with <Design Ethically> has taken me around the world. I’ve presented at the EU Parliament (2022), the US Federal Trade Commission (2021), and the World Wide Web Foundation (2021) as an expert on design ethics in the tech industry. Previously spoke at conferences such as UX London (2022), CPDP in Brussels (2022), From Business to Buttons in Stockholm (2022), Front Conference in Zürich (2021), WebExpo in Prague (2019), Mind the Gaps in Malmö (2019), Layers in San Jose (2019), and SXSW in Austin (2019). I have also guest lectured at a various universities, such as Harvard University (Spring 2021, Fall 2021), Duke University (2019), and the School of Visual Arts (2019). Featured in the “In AI We Trust” podcast (via EqualAI and the World Economic Forum), and quoted in the BBC, WIRED, Fast Company, Protocol, and Tech Policy Press. Listed as one of the 2021 Rising Stars in AI Ethics by Women in AI Ethics.
