WHO KNOWS WHERE I'M GOING
Sept 2016 - Present
UX Research Intern
I'm currently running research projects in the e-commerce space focusing on moderating product content and incentivized reviews. I'm leading usability studies, contextual interviews, compiling key findings and presenting them to stakeholders.

Software Engineer Intern
During the summer, I implemented a text mining script in order to run a sentiment analysis to better understand user needs and uses of the Capital One websites. I created a fully automated program and interactive Tableau tool for Product Owner usage.
Oct 2015 - May 2016
With the help of great mentors, I lead the creation of design updates and content on Expero's new website. Additionally I revised the UI Design Pattern library to include patterns and content of responsive UIs, mobile, and touch interfaces.

In Dr. Jacek Gwidzka's lab - dedicated to the study of human interaction across a range of digital formats - I conducted eye-tracking experiments and developed a data mining script to better understand search engines.

I had the great fortune of working on the Preoperative team within Emerging Services, focusing on and owning a project from research to design in order to create a better experience for users when dealing with and resolving conflicts during surgery scheduling.
