Experience

I supported the Industrial Design team and worked on existing projects within the healthcare field. I conducted primary and secondary research including interviews, stimuli creation (e.g. card sorts, co-create activities), workshop design and facilitation, trend research, synthesis, and designing insight frameworks and presentations. I had the opportunity to do research in other cities for my projects and traveled to Denver and Seattle to perform stakeholder interviews, procedure observations, and office tours.

In addition, I worked on an intern-led project, where I took on a leadership role as project leader, in addition to designing the research plan and performing research including interviews, workshop design and facilitation, synthesis, and designing insight presentations. 

Due to the fact that I contributed to projects that are currently in progress, I will not be sharing my design artifacts online. Please feel free to reach out to me at rodrilau@gmail.com if you wish to learn more about my process.
