Expanding Perceptions. Shifting Paradigms.
We are simultaneously experiencing the largest civil protests in 50 years, the deadliest pandemic in 100 years, and the highest temperatures since records began 150 years ago.
Our daunting challenges are highly influenced by emotional ties, cultural values, or behavioral habits that prevent people and organizations from changing, even when they see that their surrounding context has completely changed.
But lack of action is not caused by lack of knowledge.To act differently, people must see differently.
The urgency of today calls for actions that integrate knowledge from different disciplines with design approaches that let us think big, start small, and grow fast. To unleash transformation, we need audacious initiatives in their optimism, speed, scale, and scope.
I help leaders across sectors and industries expand their perceptions about challenges – and opportunities – in front of them.
As the Co-founder and Deputy Director of the Design Laboratory at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, I conduct research and develop educational and translational programs for the well-being of people, organizations, and the natural environment.
