Helen Fisher

Research Associate


Summary

I’m a researcher and designer working within Lab4Living, an interdisciplinary research cluster. My research centres on working with people to develop products, services and interventions that improve quality of life. 

I specialise in design for dementia, bereavement and end of life and have a broader background of projects in health and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in developing creative research methods that enable conversations.
