About Me

I wear two hats, research and User-experience & Design.
As an afro-centric Designer and researcher, I'm interested in creating technologies that solve African problems in ways that closely resemble African cultures, peoples, ways of living and ways of knowing.
My motivation for afro-centric design stems from the fact that technology influences what we know about the world, and how we construct that knowledge.
I therefore focus on creating and sharing an understanding of what is known about Africa, African ways of life and African ways of knowing (hence my research hat), and then transforming these research insights into usable, relevant and innovative African technologies (hence my User experience & Design hat).
