Monica Looze is an interaction and service design intern at Adaptive Path  and just finished her MA in Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University. She is also an award winning floral designer and anthropologist. She holds her bachelor's degree in anthropology from the University of Minnesota, and her floral work has been featured on Style me Pretty and Buzzfeed, and in Wisconsin Bride Magazine and Minnesota Bride Magazine. 

She is an interaction designer, service designer, and design researcher with interests in education, women's health and empowerment, sustainability in agriculture and supply chains, and products and services for underserved populations. Her experiences in the disparate fields of anthropology and floral design come together in interaction design, with unique perspectives on intuitive design, processes, and the space between what people think they do and what they actually do. She likes digging deep in nebulous problem spaces and asking difficult questions while always keeping people in the foreground.

She can also be found hanging out with her giant tuxedo cat, getting lost in farmers markets with her husband, talking about antimicrobial resistance, and contemplating the flavor complexities of different types of salt.

And, here's her CV.
