Han Pham

New York (USA)

Han Pham is an innovation designer and creativity researcher. In the past ten years, her work has balanced connecting emerging technologies and sustainable design thinking. One prominent question bridging her projects is: How can we more creatively nurture the relationships between emerging ecosystems and communities – across people, as well as new ideas and services? Han co-founded Empowerhack, a volunteer-driven design and technology network to support women and girls in humanitarian contexts, with core projects in reproductive health, mental health, child refugee rights, open data, and education. As an urban futures strategist, Han explored new data ecosystem dynamics emerging in cities. Her projects have explored urban sustainability through the lens of education, energy, mobility, disaster management and collaborate city-making from India, Finland, Scotland, Japan, Spain, France and the US.
