<h3 class="flow-text" style="line-height: 1.3;">User Researcher at <a href="https://www.redhat.com/en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Red Hat</a>.
PhD in Human Factors from <a href="https://psychology.chass.ncsu.edu/HFAC/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">NCSU</a>.&nbsp;</h3>
<p>I've been helping to build out new methods and tools for Red Hat's growing UX research team. Take a look at the<a href="https://rh-uxd.shinyapps.io/shiny_task/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> RShiny app I built</a> to calculate usability test metrics.
The broadest effort I've led is the
<a href="#modal2"><mark class="modal-highlight orange darken-3 white-text"> &nbsp; usability benchmarking plan &nbsp;</mark></a>
being executed across multiple flagship products.
I also often jump into fast-paced projects like cafeteria usability testing or remote card sorting exercises. </p>
<p>In my first semester at NCSU <a href="https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2898385" target="_blank" rel="noopener">I first-authored a proceedings paper</a>&nbsp;and presented it at the HotSOS conference. I've authored a <a href="https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=yY5J25kAAAAJ&amp;hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">few more papers</a> and presented them at HFES. I've also served as treasurer and historian in my <a href="https://ncsuhfes.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">HFES student chapter</a>, one year helping my chapter to achieve the Gold Award for outstanding student chapters. I obtained my MS in May 2017 and hope to defend my dissertation by Spring 2019.</p>
<p>I had the opportunity to work with real industry projects through NCSU, specifically with <a href="https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/home" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Epic Games</a>. With my team, I assessed the problem area, identified the key issues, ideated solutions through existing research and prototyping, and then validated the redesigns. You can see details in
<a href="#modal1"><mark class="modal-highlight orange darken-3 white-text"> &nbsp; my Epic case study &nbsp;</mark></a>.
We presented to the Unreal development team at Epic HQ and talked about our methods in a <a href="https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FCTejT8Ctmw8xHzmChBq6HltwKbmUI3I" target="_blank" rel="noopener">conference poster</a> at <a href="https://sharc2018.com/sharc-2017-photos/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">SHARC 2017</a>.&nbsp;</p>
For fun, <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/?" target="_blank">I like to take photos</a> and tinker with tech (I made this website in <a href="https://materializecss.com/" target="_blank">Materialize CSS</a>).
<p>
I'm an experienced UX researcher with an academic background in human factors psychology. My approach is multi-method: I'm as comfortable with in-depth interviews as linear mixed-effects models.
</p>
<p>
Unlike visual design and interaction design, it's hard to intuitively assess if research is good or bad. I can assess research for its strategic usefulness and methodological validity.

Here are a few things I'm particularly proud of:
