From contextual inquiry to stakeholder interviews, I have hands-on experience in data procurement and multidisciplinary processing techniques. I leverage methodologies from conceptual, speculative, participatory, universal, and user-centered design to produce tangible and digital prototypes. I am experienced in documentation and analysis of deliverables in context of the greater market or need: usability, usefulness, and interpersonal and sociocultural impact.
USER-DRIVEN AND HUMAN-CENTERED
