I am currently in graduate studies for Human-Computer Interaction and Design to further comprehend how groups/individuals interact with and understand interfaces. I spend my time researching to make interfaces more accessible, effortless, and aesthetically pleasing.
I have a background in psychology research. I spent 2.5 years as a research assistant, wrote my own thesis, obtained a publication, and presented at multiple conferences. I learned how to conduct quantitative research, but I knew there was something missing. What drew me to user experience was my personal goal of understanding how differently every person conceives, perceives, and interacts with the world. With the role technology plays in our everyday lives, I realized I needed to understand how people interacted with technology if I was ever going to find out how people truly behave in the world. My favorite thing about user experience research is understanding how a person's life experiences shape how one perceives technology.
I love meeting new people and would love to pick your brain. Or if you prefer, you can pick mine. I want to hear what you have to say. And don't forgot to send me your coffee order.
