User Researcher

More than 20 years of industry, consulting experience have brought me a wide range of project management practice, and UX industry domain skills and capabilities.

- Profile -

With a Master’s Degree in Cognitive Sciences, with solid training in Japan in the growing field of user experience, with superior language capabilities in Japanese and English, and with varied international travel and living experiences, I am comfortable working in multicultural environments. I am also excited about the practical value of my services. My business is domiciled in Tokyo. During 2008-09, I took a 1-year sabbatical to accompany my husband on his academic fellowships in the Netherlands and the United States, and during 2018-21, my husband and I had been living in Lund, Sweden as he had been assigned abroad. Those experiences has enabled me to expand my international network of colleagues and contacts.
