Catherine Winfield

Design Director, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

Catherine focuses on leading creative teams that help people. She believes in using design skills for good and hopes to challenge others to do the same. At present Catherine leads a powerfully talented team of designers, researchers, and content strategists at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative who work passionately on improving our K-12 education system in the US.

Previously she was the Design Director at Foundation Medicine leading a team that designed for one of the world's biggest problems, cancer. She has also led research and design teams at the startup Quanttus, a wearable tech company in the cardiology space, and led a team of designers at a lab at MIT post-graduation. Tackling big problems that matter is what gets her out of bed in the morning.
