Louisa is driven by a sense of curiosity and a desire to help create positive change in the world. She makes sense of the unique context of a given situation through exploration and directed inquiry. Louisa can visualise the broader system and the diverse human experiences of that system, to generate deep insights and reframe design processes with clients and design participants.
Louisa combines her strong analysis and research skills with strategic thinking to contribute to significant design processes that drive systemic change. She has worked with a range of government organisations to explore the human understanding that shapes how they work, and signals where they won’t. She has also developed strategies that guide direction, designed behavioural interventions and assisted governments to develop innovation labs that drive social and economic transformation.
Louisa has an interdisciplinary background that has strengthened her ability to draw out and understand diverse perspectives. At the Australian National University, Louisa facilitated the interdisciplinary Vice-Chancellor’s course Creating Knowledge, co-founded the Cross-Disciplinary Student’s Academy and co-founded the Global Cross-Disciplinary Tournament with the International Alliance of Research Universities. Louisa studied mathematics, philosophy, Indonesian and anthropology alongside electives from across the university.
