Chloe Coelho

Chloe is an Industrial Design graduate from RMIT University where she researched the death-care industry for her final year project; recognised as a Good Design Award Winner in 2019. She cultivated a passion for issues surrounding grief and wants to further explore and build on how design can be situated in this area to create a positive impact (especially in the Digital Age). Chloe plans to extend this research into a Postgraduate study, seeking to understand the complexities of grief in people in order to lessen unnecessary suffering. In the past, Chloe has worked on projects involving Dementia and elderly care, as well as infant mortality. She believes design will play an important role in fostering developments in wellbeing and care in these sometimes obscure areas. By practicing Human Centred Design in many of her projects, Chloe hopes to improve the quality of life of people in the community
