While studying abroad, Rachel conducted ethnographic research. Despite her interest in cultural anthropology, she didn’t want a career in academia—instead, Rachel turned to the tech sector. From there, she found out how product design could take what she loved about ethnography into making physical things and having an immediate impact on the world around her.
