Day job: Design researcher, The Third Teacher
Description: Sarah Malin provides The Third Teacher team an attention to the implicit values that drive a community and a keen ability to synthesize and articulate findings. Before her arrival to the design field, she studied anthropology and researched identity negotiation in Morocco’s urban centers. To complement her academic experience, she honed her writing and articulation abilities at a public-interest communications firm before joining Cannon. While at Northwestern University, she directed the largest student-organized conference on human rights in the country and additionally helped organize conferences that dealt with international development and social impact. Such coordination experience has proved invaluable as The Third Teacher thrives on collaboration and the synergy of diverse thinkers and disciplines.
Superpower: “I would be invisible – but not so that I could sneak into top secret places – more so that I could listen and watch people all I want…ok that sounds creepy…for learning/professional reasons of course!”
