  • Project Bamboo
    2009-2010

    Competencies: User interviews, focus groups, data analysis, sketching, wireframing

    Project Bamboo seeks to advance arts & humanities research using technology services. By conducting qualitative user studies and focus groups, I generated a number of wireframe interfaces demonstrating concepts for online communities for humanities scholars. These were used to further refine user requirements and as part of the larger project proposal.

    Competencies: User interviews, sketching, prototyping

    As a course project, I developed this prototype web-based mobile application in a team of two.

Technologies used include PHP, MySQL, AJAX, and the Google Maps API.
