I am a UX Researcher and Human Factors Engineer with a background in biomedical engineering and computer science.
While working as a software engineer for a medical device group, I witnessed first hand how we both fail and succeed in improving the quality of life for those who need it most through our design decisions. This is why I am passionate about using knowledge of human behaviors and capabilities, user research and usability testing to ensure that complex technologies are safe and intuitive.
