Raquel Kalil is a UX Designer + Research Assistant in the Innovation Services Group at PARC.
Her hybrid practice weaves architectural, interaction, and UX research methodologies with visual sensibility to create unique, holistic experiences. Raquel's breadth as a designer allows her to work seamlessly and confidently across disciplines. She specializes in developing unique design processes while maintaining a balance between the vision and delivering concrete solutions. Raquel's super power is her ability to draw connections between people and data. 
In addition to her professional practice, Raquel collaborates with artists, designers, chefs, farmers and technologists to communicate sustainable possibilities through gastronomic experiences. She explores gestures, rituals and value systems which culminates in a body of work regarding the future of eating. She is deeply passionate about this craft and is currently working on an riso-printed anthology called, Hand. Food. Mouth.
