Profile

Before joining Shift as an Innovation Lead, Fan worked with Food For Life as Head of Service Design, supporting Lambeth and Southwark schools to tackle childhood obesity.

Fan builds on eight years of experience working as a service designer and participatory researcher with charities and the public sector to improve health and care systems. She has worked with the Design Council, Future Gov and Innovation Unit.

Fan is passionate about the role that food plays in all aspects of human life. She co-founded Brixton People’s Kitchen, a community organisation aiming to reduce food waste and social isolation, and is currently setting up Comfort Food, an intimate experience combining audio storytelling and food to bring people’s emotional food memories to life.

Fan’s favourite things are spending time with her daughter, learning how to play the kora, and turning personal data into knitted blankets.
