I’m Gabrielle Clarke. I'm a manager, design researcher, human-centered designer, and engineer from San Diego, California. I graduated from Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts in 2018 with a degree in engineering and a concentration in human-centered design. I love thinking about problems at the system level, and also refining small details.

Last year, I worked as a research and development intern at female-founded smart city sustainable hardware start-up Soofa on user engagement projects throughout the company. I’m currently taking a break from the tech world to explore my love for food and working with people as a restaurant manager at The Crack Shack.

In life, I enjoy traveling and learning new things. I have a particular fondness for Southern California weather, good Mexican food, and rock and roll.
