She’s a Principal UX Designer at PwC’s Experience Centre and she’s fascinated about the interaction between digital and physical worlds. She has undertaken numerous research pieces over the past 14 years for private sector and government clients, and has loved every single one of them.

In her spare time, Ruth makes science based jewellery with lasers, plays around with 3D printers and wearable computing and helps to organise events like BarCamp Canberra, TEDxCanberra and Web Accessibility and Inclusive Design Meetup. She loves good inclusive design and robots.
