Design Director and Co-Founder | doppel

    I co-founded doppel in 2014 from a research project undertaken on the Innovation Design Engineering course, run jointly by Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art.

    doppel (patent-pending) is a wearable technology proven to make you feel calm and focused, naturally, and within moments. It creates a rhythmic pulse that you feel on the inside of your wrist as a heartbeat like vibration. We do not simply perceive this rhythm, but we entrain to it – a faster rhythm makes us feel more alert, and a slower one calms us down. The effect is similar to listening to upbeat or slower music. But with doppel, there’s no noise and no distraction.

    doppel is an award-winning technology, tested on several hundreds of people with impressive results. More details on the science can be found in our White Paper and published article in Nature Scientific Reports.

    At doppel I am involved in most aspects of the business, with my key responsibilities and focus laying in design and manufacutre. This ranges from early concept work, product prototyping, to design for manufacture. I spend my time between London and Qingdao where our manufacturing partners are based. I also design and manage the front end of our app, as well as content creation and branding.
