Presented @ the DMI: Design Management Institute Academic Design Conference

Design Research Society 50th Anniversary Conference

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.

The Design Research Society was founded in 1966, and facilitates an international design research network in approximately 40 countries.
