Through her PhD Leah developed the Tactile ToolsTM methodology, which she has used to help over 180 experts from across healthcare, engineering and education solve complex design problems. These include improving end-of-life experience, understanding the roadblocks to implementing voluntary assisted dying, helping communities through environmental transition and developing ways to improve the delivery of cancer care.
