What We Do

Our approach


Deeptech is a research consultancy that looks at things systemically. 
We do user research and trends analysis to help organizations design services, initiatives, and policies that address complex issues.

We can help you with:
• User research, usability studies, ethnography
• Trends analysis, environmental scans, qualitative data analysis
• Research, evaluation, and framework design
• Report writing

We work as a part of larger teams to develop initiatives, advocate for issues, and answer strategic research questions.

Systems thinking

We work to connect the micro with the macro, integrating ground-level observations with big picture trends.

Human-centered design

We help determine whether what you are doing is working and how you can best meet the needs of the people you serve.

Strategic research

We use a variety of research methods to get a deep understanding of the situation at hand including ethnography and environmental scans.

From micro to macro

We use research to make positive change in the world.

We have been doing applied research for the past decade on topics as diverse as community radio stations, sustainable food systems, perceptions of the future in China, and the reasons why many Americans don’t have broadband at home.

We look at the details (conversations, homes, relationships, stores, interactions, best practices, online dialogues, the price of gas, the news) to create frameworks that help people understand the big picture.

Research reports

We produce reports based on trend, data, and issue analysis.

Research design

We design and implement user-focused research to investigate complex questions.
