Sasha is driven to create positive impact in our everyday lives, using innovation to rethink lived experiences. She uses her experiences of disability, gender, race, and sexuality to build rapport in engagements and find unique ways to reframe problems and solutions. She is particularly focused on developing human-centred approaches to on and offline research and facilitation.
She is an experienced online, offline, and blended settings facilitator, having run both online and offline focus groups and workshops for a number of clients, including the NDIA, NLA, and Woollahra Libraries. Her work with the NDIA involved facilitating a blended online and offline conference in a fully accessible manner.
Experienced in mixed-methods research, she uses novel approaches to bring together quantitative and qualitative data. She graduated with First Class Honours in Social Anthropology for the University of St Andrews, which provided her with experience in user research, with a specialty in designing and leading complex ethnographic and digital research. She has worked on a number of mixed methods research projects for clients such as USAID, the NLA, and the ADHA. In her work for USAID to research infant nutritional practices, she designed and conducted fully remote engagements with rural participants in Nigeria.
Sasha is passionate about bringing culture, humanity, and diversity to research and design.
