On this episode, Katie is joined by Dr. Nicola Ulibarri, an assistant professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy at the University of California, Irvine, where she leads an interdisciplinary research group that studies water and infrastructure management. Her group combines approaches from environmental planning, public administration, and water resource engineering to improve the interactions between people, infrastructure, and the environment.  In 2010, while doing her PhD at Stanford, Nicola collaboratively developed a workshop curriculum to enhance busy researchers’ creativity with design thinking, a human-centered approach to innovation. That team recently turned the curriculum into a book, Creativity in Research: Cultivate Clarity, Be Innovative, and Make Progress in your Research Journey (Cambridge University Press, 2019). The book presents key abilities that underlie creative research practice through a combination of scientific literature, vignettes, experiential exercises, and guided reflection.

Segment 1: Benefits of Creativity in Research [00:00-18:59]

In this first segment, Nicola shares about her recent book project on creativity and research.

In this segment, the following resources are mentioned:

Segment 2: Empirically-based Tools for Creativity [19:00-37:48]
