BioErik Olesund, is a strategic designer, user experience researcher, and improvisor. He studies, teaches, and uses design thinking to create a world where human-made systems and institutions serve people (and not the other way around).
He previously served as a Lecturer, Teaching Fellow, and Global Program Manager at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the d.school) at Stanford University. At the d.school he taught human-centered design to students from all over campus, with a specific emphasis on its applications in government and the social impact sector. He also managed the d.school's Global program and led their experimentation with mobile media learning experiences.
Today he works as a design consultant at Collective Capital, helping organizations implement design thinking and use it to uncover the problems that matter most to their constituents. He continues to regularly teach at the d.school and beyond.
Erik holds a MSc in Management Science & Engineering from Stanford University and a BSc in Industrial Engineering and Management from Chalmers University.
