My name is Romy, I am a strategist, designer and technologist from Beirut. I  graduated with a Master in Design Studies in Technology from the Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.

Since graduating, I held a  research position at the Laboratory for Design Technologies where I led the development of community co-design tools and am currently an XR design strategist at Magic Leap working on new modes of interaction with digital content.

I am formally trained as an architect, with a Bachelor of Architecture from the American University of Beirut. My previous professional experience includes design consultancy at Dar Group, and more recently creative technology in places like Supernormal and CannonDesign.
