Emotion-Centered Consultant/Advisor


Hola! I work as an advisor, participating in projects that can use my more than 25 years of experience working at the interjection of creativity, technology and affect/emotions.

I also serve as the Executive Director of Raising the Floor-International (an international NGO committed to the advancement of digital equity), and at the Advisory Board of the Doug Engelbart Institute (committed to boosting Collective IQ to solve important challenges).

My research is on experience design and it includes: “The Joy of e-Learning” (2007), “Emotion-Centered Design” (2015) and the “Ten Emotion Heuristics” (2006, adopted by Microsoft UX Global in 2020).  

Personal note:

I am the really proud mother of my two sons Babin and Amine, together we sail in this exciting journey of self-discovery, while on our pursuit for love and joy in our lives and the world around us.
