This conference was hosted by Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston, MA. I presented my research and was the chair of two sessions focused on the topic of Leadership, and Organization Design. The cross disciplinary attendees did not go unnoticed by everyone there. It was really nice to hear different perspectives on design, collaborations, and design research. The Design Management Institute (DMI) is an international membership organization that connects design to business, to culture, to customers and to the changing world.
The Design Research Conference was held in the summer of 2016 in Brighton, UK. Not only was the conference full of wonderful speakers and workshops, but I loved the culture in Brighton. I was invited to present the process and methods used in my research and how the factors gleaned from that research guided my design for the mobile application “Operation Compass.” I was also invited to publish my paper presented in the conference proceedings. Out of 500 papers submitted 40% were accepted, and mine was accepted without revisions. The Design Research Society was founded in 1966, and facilitates an international design research network in approximately 40 countries.
Accepted into the Design Research Conference 2016, in Brighton UK, for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. Looking forward to attending this conference and hearing all of the speakers!

12th Annual Conference of the International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility hosted by Drexel UniversitySeptember 9, 2014
This was my first time speaking at an academic conference and it was the perfect first conference experience. There were around 90 attendees and so many of them had known each other fora many years. I was invited to present on the contextual research I conducted for my thesis: Riding Shotgun, Supporting Truck Drivers with a Method of Anonymously Reporting Incidents of Child Trafficking as a panelist member on the discussion of Mobility Justice & Sexual Nobilities.
