    Our team was tasked with helping new users to understand how to use SPOCK and for experienced users to understand how to adapt new tools into their workflow.

ABOUT ME

Creative, problem-solver, people listener, storyteller...

Does it seem too pretentious? Not to me! Helping people and solving problems is my passion. Listening to people, having empathy and doing user research is part of the way I relate to stories and people as well.

 

Then I met design and it was a fling I wasn’t able to shut down.

Even until now, I never stop questioning how design has improved and shape my life, and the ones I design for. So, why think the two as separate? 

They are just two strokes of the same pen...

My Professional Work

I have had the opportunity to work on many projects as a UX Designer. Each project has its own challenge, user, client, an end goal that makes it special. In my undergraduate years at Purdue, I had the opportunity to be a student collaborator for industry leaders. Some of these projects I was tasked to be the leader of a design team, which ranged from 5 to 10 teammates. I also am the current User Experience Designer for the Envision Center. The Envision Center is a service laboratory specializing in scientific visualization, virtual reality simulations, multimedia production, and human-computer interaction research. I directly work with clients, VR technology, and more.
