I am a recent Product Design Graduate from Central St.Martins College of Art and Design with practical experience of all stages of product design from concept and idea generation through to prototype and up to manufacturing. I believe in apprehending the nature of a project through research. Instead of relying on a computer, her design philosophy is hands on. The creation of prototypes increases my understanding and helps shape the outcome. Enthusiastic about a good cause, I enjoy working in human-centred design, dealing with real issues. I would characterise myself as highly motivated problem solver with a rigorous attention to details; curious about how something is made and how it works. Apart from design my field of interest covers martial arts, physics and biology.
