data and insights for empathy

Research through Design Thinking

We apply Design Thinking mindsets of empathy, collaboration, and prototyping when doing research. We borrow methods from social science research in answering questions and developing tools for measurement and program evaluation. We use research for both formative and summative purposes: we study users and derive actionable insights to design interventions, and we measure learning to evaluate the impact of a project.
