Julie is a research-driven designer who loves digging into socio-technical problems in order to make technology work for real people in the context of their real lives. She grew up in Sacramento, received a BA in Art and Art History from Mills College and a Master of HCI + Design from the University of Washington. Before grad school she worked at the design consultancy, Dubberly Design Office, and freelanced for human-rights and arts non profits.
She is most interested in speculative design and its role in civic life, privacy and social justice issues in HCI, as well as collaborative art and design practices.
