Hi, I'm Aliza

I'm a multi-disciplinary designer that enjoys using human-centered approaches, behavioral insights, and strategic thinking to help create products that foster greater connection, collaboration, and well-being. 

I’ve had the chance to flex my research, communication, and design skills in a number of arenas. As a former Teach for America corps member, I learned how to distill a complex subject (Chemistry) and make it accessible and engaging for one of the toughest of audiences: high school students. After TFA, I charted and communicated new strategic directions for Fortune 500 companies, foundations, non-profits, and government agencies as part of my work as a management consultant for Monitor Deloitte. In the summer of 2016 I worked for Duke's Center for Advanced Hindsight, applying the principles of behavioral science to product design. 

I graduated with a Masters in Learning, Design, and Technology at Stanford, a multi-disciplinary program in human-centered design, learning science, and human-computer interaction.
