I’m Lucy Blakemore, a qualitative research and education specialist based in Sydney, Australia. Get in touch if you need someone who asks great questions, designs creative research, has intense listening skills and can summarise almost anything on a single whiteboard.
I take messy, ambiguous human data and extract insights and frameworks we can apply to organisational challenges in practical ways. I’ve worked in both client-side and agency roles and collaborate on projects directly, or as an extra pair of hands for busy insights teams.
I love working across diverse projects and sectors, and specialise in international education and the behavioural drivers informing digital innovation.
