Faculty and Design Research Associates
Projects in the Health Design Lab are led by HDL Director, Caylee Raber and HDL Coordinator, Nadia Beyzaei, along with a team of Faculty and Design Research Associates brought on board for specific projects to provide project leadership and design expertise.
Our team is constantly expanding to meet new project needs, bringing on new team members and integrating new students into our projects as paid Research Assistants, or through course-based projects. Most of our students are enrolled at Emily Carr University — in the Master of Design Program, or one of three Bachelor of Design Program streams (Communication Design, Industrial Design or Interaction Design). Students bring design skills and new perspectives to each project, often playing critical roles as co-design facilitators. On average, our team includes 10-20 Research Assistants on various projects.
