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: Web design, web development
I worked with Morten Hansen, Harvard Business School professor and author of the new book Collaboration to design and implement the book's website.
The site includes a full user management system created in PHP and MySQL, to allow readers to take surveys from the book, and for collecting and analyzing the survey data.
The Farmer's Market Explorer
User Interface Design, Spring 2009
Competencies: User interviews, sketching, prototyping
As a course project, I developed this prototype web-based mobile application in a team of two. We followed user-centered design methodologies to develop an application which enables farmer's market patrons to post reviews, pictures, and information about what they buy and which farmers they buy from. Technologies used include PHP, MySQL, AJAX, and the Google Maps API.
University Village Energy Management
Info. Systems & Service Design, Fall 2008
Competencies: Use case modeling, requirements gathering, service blueprinting, sketching
I planned a prototypical service to help residents and administrators of an apartment complex visualize and track power usage. My team followed service-design methodologies, including requirements gathering, use-case modeling and service blueprinting as a bottom-up design strategy, as well as top-down strategies to envision how the system could be made compelling for the individual user.

Competencies: Web design, web development, XML, XSLT
I worked to update the design and maintain content of this XML and XSLT-driven website for the ISD group at the UC Berkeley School of Information.
Product Design and Development
Competencies: Survey design, user interviews, requirements gathering, data analysis, sketching, prototyping
In this design course, my team developed an alarm clock design targeted toward college students. We followed user research methodologies to design the alarm, and developed a business plan for it as well.
