I am a Montreal-based UX Researcher focused on user-centered design and healthcare. My expertise spans design research, informatics, cognitive psychology, and behavioral economics.
I completed my Ph.D. in Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab, followed by a National Library of Medicine post-doctoral fellowship in telemedicine and behavior change at Boston Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. Following my training, I joined a startup, PatientsLikeMe, working on experience design and researching the site’s effects on user health. Subsequently, I moved to Amsterdam where I worked as a lead designer at Mediamatic, as the senior UX researcher an online platform for Cancer patients, Kanker.nl, and as an Assistant Professor at VU University Amsterdam. In Montreal, I have worked on the development of a platform for caregivers, Huddol, and consulted on UX for various Health 2.0 projects in Canada and the US. My work has been featured in numerous media outlets including the Financial Times, The NY Times, the Volkskrant and Glamour magazine.
My current interests include participatory medicine, feedback and behavior, gamification, and French conjugation.
