Justin Henceroth is the Product Manager for FieldSight, a Resident of the Nepal Innovation Lab and an Innovation Advisor to the UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS). A Colorado native, he is currently based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Justin started FieldSight as part of his Thesis for his Masters in Design Studies, Risk and Resilience at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
Before starting FieldSight, Justin was an expert in collaborative process design and management with a focus on stakeholder engagement, program development, consensus building, and strategy planning. As a Fellow at Meridian Institute in Colorado, he facilitated public policy development processes on natural resource management, technology, energy, agriculture, and development. In 2012, his work with the US Forest Service was awarded the National Environmental Collaboration and Conflict Resolution Award for ‘innovative and exemplary’ collaborative efforts. He later moved to Bangkok, Thailand where we worked with city governments throughout Southeast Asia to build urban resilience to the twin challenges of urbanization and climate change.
Justin holds a BA in Biology from The Colorado College (ask him about his thesis on dinosaur teeth!), but has shifted his focus to design, innovation, and entrepreneurship, seeing this as a path for creating new solutions to address a complex and uncertain future. He is 2005 Boettcher Scholar and 2012 Henry Luce Scholar, and he speaks English, Thai, and Spanish.
