User Experience Research Lead, Creative Cloud & Emerging Products at Adobe: As a trustee I will bring a user-centred, research-minded approach to the organisation and I will also aid in Eastside’s increasing digital presence. I look forward to furthering Eastside’s longstanding relationship with Adobe, a fellow Shoreditch-based company, focussed on uplifting the next generation of creatives. Currently in my research at Adobe and the University of Oxford Internet Institute, I examine how technology based design affordances influence artistic output and creative access with a particular focus on historically underinvested communities. Previously I studied cognitive neuropsychology at Princeton University, and i’ve also held research positions at Intel and Harvard University.
