As a UX Designer – I focus on creating efficient and intuitive workflows that satisfy the needs of project management, development, the user and myself. To do this I create wireframes, mockups and prototypes through iterative design. I will write detailed design specifications and adjust designs based on my analysis of the user needs, user feedback and business requirements.
As a UX Researcher – I focus on gathering meaningful data to understand all aspects of the problem and/or design I have been presented with. To do this I create test scripts for usability studies based around wireframes or prototypes. I may also meet one on one with a user for an interview or in a larger focus group.
My Master’s thesis utilized a user experience research protocol to analyze differences in perceptions of facial emotion between stylized and realistic animated characters.
