Sofia Valeur Baumgarten
Sofia Valeur Baumgarten holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Copenhagen and is currently pursuing a master’s degree within the field. As part of the programme, Sofia is doing an internship at Danish Design Centre, where she is affiliated with the business area Design Health. Sofia is for instance working on the project Boxing Future Health, which aids at designing new and better solutions in relation to the future health sector.
Sofia is especially curious about social relations and how the surrounding society has an impact hereon. She is driven by processes that include and challenge social phenomena, and she sees a great development potential in provoking truisms and thereby searching for alternatives and new solutions.
In particular, Sofia is interested in the health area and has previous experience from a job in the research group Diabetes Management Research at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen. Above all, she is preoccupied with the approach ‘user involvement’ and how it has the potential for great improvements, for example in business development.
