Sarah Nicita 

Hi! I am a graduate of the Brown | RISD Dual Degree Program, where I received a B.F.A in Textile Design from Rhode Island School of Design and an Sc.B. in Cognitive Neuroscience from Brown University. This fall I will be a student at Harvard's Graduate School of Design, pursuing an MDes with a concentration in Ecologies. 


I have interned with biotech, healthcare, and non-profit based companies, while contributing to research initiatives at Brown, UCSD, and Harvard.


At Brown, I was passionate about work that pertained to human resilience, international development and community driven design; my formal independent research on these topics were supported through Brown’s Guiliano Global Fellowship, the Linda Pei Research Award, Brown’s UTRA (Undergraduate Research and Teaching Award), and Brown’s Science Center Fellowship.


Moving forward, I hope to invest in projects and spaces that challenge norms and seek to push the boundaries of design and research, ultimately leveraging my educational background to make small inroads on global problems.
