Hi! I'm Lianne.
I am a design researcher interested in the intersection of climate impact and design innovation. As a painter, photographer, and dancer with a background in qualitative research, Psychology statistics, and UX, I operate in the in-betweens. I thrive in ambiguity and love the challenge of uncovering a story in the data.
I’ve spent the past few years helping tech companies like Amazon, Meta, Google, Lenovo, and Verizon understand user needs, iterate prototypes, and identify business opportunities. I also coach Design Innovation at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.
When I’m not working, I’m usually in Central Park birding or training for my marathon. Otherwise, you can probably find me in the kitchen, attempting to make veggie stock from leftovers or veganizing my mom’s best dumpling recipe.
