hi, i'm ana!

i'm a multidisciplinary designer based in Stanford, CA

Currently diving into the Learning Design and Technology masters program at Stanford Graduate School of Education.
Most recently, I’ve been a design lead at Por A Mais B, an education startup that empowers educators, educational managers, and policymakers with data-driven insights. 
I've also designed experiences and tools in collaboration with teachers and students from private and public schools to foster creativity by making learning fun.
My current interests include physical-digital learning experiences, play-based learning, and early childhood development.
In my spare time, I like to read and engage in book clubs, sew and illustrate.
