As a UX researcher, I plan and lead research that provides deep insights into people’s behavior, preferences and values, especially as it relates to their use of technology. Outcomes include recommendations for improving existing experiences as well as identifying new market opportunities. I have worked on projects in diverse fields such as enterprise, retail, telecom, fitness trackers, and consumer electronics.
Before getting my master's degree from UC Berkeley School of Information I worked as a graphic designer for many years and have significant experience in branding and marketing. My design background informs my research, resulting in actionable insights and recommendations, as well as the ability to envision and prototype design solutions.
I currently work at Google where I do research on products under development within Material Design.
