I’m Simona, an aspiring human-centered industrial designer.

I’m currently based in Philadelphia PA, completing the last semester of a Masters in Integrated Product Design at the University of Pennsylvania. At UPenn, I’ve received an invaluable foundation of the human-centered design process, and have been able to bring my interdisciplinary interests to the table in every project I’ve worked on. My coursework has ranged from from furniture design to the role of art in social work, and from the architecture of healthcare spaces to designing around climate change.

You can see some of the work I’ve done in my classes – and also some personal projects – below. Don’t hesitate to reach out via email with any questions!
