Growing up in New Hampshire, Carolyn dreamed of becoming a ballerina. Twenty years later, she hung up her pointe shoes and picked up a power drill. After receiving her Engineering degree from Smith College she went on to work for DEKA, developer of the Segway, where she worked on a high tech water purification system. While working at DEKA, she realized that she was more fascinated with how people interacted with the technologies being developed rather than the technologies themselves.
Carolyn is a recent graduate of the Masters of Industrial Design Program at Pratt Institute. Her thesis, entitled “Beyond the Tap”, explored how improved water is managed in the developing world. In addition to teaching as a visting instructor, she is the Assistant Director of Pratt’s Center for Sustainable Design Studies.
