She studied Industrial Design at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, USA, and, ever since, has been familiar with using the design thinking methodology, which was later labelled by the IDEO. She did postgraduate studies at the Domus Academy in Milano, Italy, and has obtained a Master of Fine Arts in Communications Design with focus on branding and strategic design, at the University of Mannheim.
