Assisting Nepal after the earthquake: Lessons learned from applying design thinking in a post-disaster context

0 0

Last year, after a devastating series of earthquakes that impacted 6.6 million people and killed over 9000, a team of Google employees went to Nepal to help with disaster relief. Sumier Phalake was one of two User Experience Designers chosen to go as part of this team. In this talk, Sumier will recap his experiences applying design thinking to a post-disaster situation and share the results of his work there. Further, he will broaden the discussion to the role of design & research in the developing world and factors critical for success in these regions, in both commercial and non-profit contexts.
