Eugenia O’Kelly is a research student and member of the Healthcare Design Group supervised by Professor John Clarkson and Dr. James Ward.  She is researching risk managment in healthcare, incorporating Safety-II theory.

Before joining the EDC, she founded and ran a small, design consultancy company focused on creating surgical simulators and doctor/patient communication tools.

While at Stanford, Eugenia's undergraduate thesis focused on improving the quality and efficiency of non-photorealistic rendering pipelines in the entertainment industry, with a secondary focus on the efficiency vs adaptability of pipelines used by independent vs institutional creators.
