With more than 15 years’ experience working with designers, engineers, and scientists, I have a particular interest in designing human-centered systems. I advise corporations and startups on using Thick Data--quantitative, ethnographic research methods that uncover emotions, stories, and meaning--to improve strategy, policy, products, and services. Organisations I have worked with include P&G, Nokia, GE, Kickstarter, the United Nations and NASA.

|contribution||Dhruv||Sharma||case study, highwire edition, op ed||Everybody's an ethnographer||Everybody has innate observational and interpretive (ethnographic) expertise that can be harnessed and expert ethnographers can help in finding ways of tapping into this resource.||Everybody has innate ethnographic expertise||People do this naturally and may not be aware of it but ethnographers do it more systematically and for a purpose.||The role of ethnographers in future should be focussed on developing strategies to utilise people's natural ethnographic abilities.||@dhruvsharma101 wants to put ethnographers out of their jobs!

Dhruv has a background in anthropology, has worked in various countries as an ethnographer, and also holds a master’s degree in design ethnography from Dundee University. His research at HighWire is concerned with radical digital interventions designed to address issues of loneliness among the elderly. Being immersed in the post disciplinary environment at HighWire, Dhruv has come to the conclusion that, perhaps, everyone is an ethnographer.
