Senior Interaction Designer
As a Senior Interaction Designer in the Nairobi studio, Linda focuses on creating intuitive tools and meaningful experiences through design. She is passionate about how children learn and how technology can empower them.
Before joining IDEO.org, Linda led the product team at Eneza Education, a USSD learning platform with over 3 million users in Kenya. Prior to that, she was a learning experience designer at the African Leadership University, a chain of tertiary education institutions which aims to develop the next generation of African leaders. At ALU, Linda was responsible for assessing the effectiveness of the learning model and designing interventions to improve it. She also designed and taught courses on data analysis and African studies. Before ALU, Linda worked for Google where she focused on connecting more of Africa to the internet.
When she is not working, Linda loves imagining futures for Africa through science-fiction and exploring Senegalese cuisine and its influences. She draws energy from swimming in the ocean, dancing to Afro-cuban music, and solving puzzles.
