Hello ? I’m Pedro.
Lead UX and Service Design Consultant.
Co-founder @
Studio Oto

London-based consultant with 13 years of experience in product strategy, user research, service design, information architecture, and user experience design.

I have experience across the entire end-to-end design process, with special focus on conducting research to understand the audience and identify needs, workshops to find solutions and build shared understanding among stakeholders, and evaluate the solutions devised by testing them with users.

Previously I've had the opportunity to work with agencies including AKQA, RG/A and IBM iX, and companies including Wellcome Trust, FutureLearn and Ford Mobility,

Policy Tool, by the Wellcome Trust.

Wellcome Reach is an open-source service for discovering how research publications are cited in global policy documents, including those produced by policy organisations such as the WHO, MSF, and the UK government.
