Winner of competitive NSF GROW fellowship picks CDI

Welcome product design research fellow Carlye!

We are proud to announce the commencement of our new research fellow, Ms Carlye Lauff. Carlye is a mechanical engineering graduate and is currently completing her PhD with a focus on design, through the University of Colorado Boulder.

The goal of her research is to form an overall framework of how businesses conduct prototyping and develop strategies to improve the process.

After winning the National Science Foundation Graduate Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) fellowship to spend a semester abroad in any of 18 countries, Carlye chose Australia after discovering Swinburne’s Centre for Design Innovation (CDI).

Carlye describes CDI as "exactly the kind of place someone researching prototyping would want to be" due to our strong collaboration ideals within the product design industry.

More on Carlye on the UoC website.
