We'd like to welcome our 2 new team members. They've been with us for about a month now, and we're super excited to have them. Introducing...

Lan Nguyen

Lan comes to human-centered design by way of cognitive neuroscience research and six years of nonprofit consulting experience. She previously served as Outreach and Engagement Consultant with Move to End Violence, a 10-year initiative to support the movement to end violence against women and girls. Prior to that, Lan worked at Boston University’s School of Medicine conducting eye-tracking experiments to study language and cognition in people with Williams Syndrome. Most recently, she worked as a design researcher at Veryday, a global design and innovation firm. 

Lan is currently designing her year with Experience Institute, a master’s level program based in apprenticeships and real-world experiences. She previously completed DESIGNATION, an intensive design program focusing on UX, UI, and front-end development. Lan received her bachelor’s degree in cognitive neuroscience from Amherst College and studied in Copenhagen, Denmark through the Denmark Institute of Study Abroad as part of the Migration and Multiculturalism program.

When not thinking about community and design, Lan likes to go rock climbing, take photos, or nerd out about things like Delaunay triangulation. 

 

Sean Nazari

 

Sean hails from beautiful Los Angeles, CA and is excited to be part of the amazing team at Diagram! His professional interest lies in developing products and services in healthcare and working on creative, socially impactful projects. As a researcher, he’s worked for UCLA on studies looking for therapies to reduce cognitive impairment in neurodegenerative diseases.

When he’s not researching, writing or brainstorming for Diagram, you can find him: catching classic film noirs, cooking Thai dishes (only the best for Sean), satisfying his sugar cravings via pies and doughnuts (sweet treats prove to be his kryptonite), rock climbing or cycle touring for the eleventy-bajillionth time.
