Leading the Vitality Squad and the Vitality Studio, she also supervises projects on designerly ways to trigger behavior change for healthier lifestyles, with solutions contributing to both physical and mental vitality and healthy living. Relying on the aesthetics of interaction principles and the use of data as a creative material, these interactive artifacts support motivation and change.
