Erica Estrada

Co-Founder
d.light design



Erica Estrada, Co-Founder of d.light design, has her B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford, and previously led the product design and customer research operations at d.light.  At d.light, she was in charge of developing product concepts, prototyping ideas, field testing concepts and user interaction design.  One of her primary roles was building customer empathy through the needfinding process, thus allowing her to spend much time in rural villages and settings.  Erica is now a close advisor to d.light, and will spend the next year as a d.school Fellow at Stanford co-teaching the Design for Extreme Affordability course where d.light first began.
