About Kirsty Angerer:

Kirsty Angerer aka The Travelling Ergonomist is passionate about educating the world on the subject of ergonomics and human factors.

She is a Certified Professional Ergonomist, Fitwel Ambassador, WELL Movement Concept Advisor and self-confessed nerd.

In a world where we are campaigning for mental health awareness, creating sugar taxes to minimise the obesity crisis and lining the streets about climate change it is staggering that ergonomics and human factors, the very science that impacts how humans interact with their environment has yet to be fully in the limelight.

Whilst ergonomics is a preventative based discipline where we look to design issues out from the get go, Kirsty believes that there is an inherent opportunity to enhance people’s performance. Rather than just surviving the workday, how can we encourage people to thrive.
