Connor Ratycz


Chicago Headquarters

I am a design researcher who is interested in understanding and uncovering insights into human behaviors and creating solutions that challenge conventional norms. I strongly believe in the power of multi-disciplinary teams, and my unique background in immunology, human-centered design, business, and entrepreneurship allow me to approach problem solving using a variety of different strategies. With my business background and prior strategy consulting work, I am excited about connecting research findings to business decisions, by translating offerings are desirable for users while being feasible for the business.

I have a Master’s degree in Business & Entrepreneurship from the University of Notre Dame and a Bachelor in Biology from the University of Dayton. I am passionate about being empathetic and learning from others, philosophy, punk and hardcore music, and challenging the status quo.


MS in Business and Entrepreneurship (ESTEEM) – University of Notre Dame; BS in Biology – University of Dayton
