Science UX Designer |
Science Communicator |
I want to make an impact on human experiences with health and life sciences. I apply a user-centered approach to digital education, science storytelling, and informal engagement. Although classically trained as a pharmacology research scientist, I have completed 6+ years in educational technology work and will complete a Masters Degree in UX Design in December 2022. I am interested in working with like-minded individuals to utilize UX design approaches to develop innovative solutions and solve marketing, brand, advertising, and communication problems through qualitative and quantitative research techniques.
I can uniquely provide a people-focused, data-driven process and strategic management that improves project outcomes. I blend a Ph.D. level understanding of pharmacology with 5+ years of digital communication and branding experience. I am inspired by new digital technology, using online learning and visualization methods. My unique experiences as a liaison within science and communication can help identify needs, approaches, and new directions for audience expansion.
My strength is in user and market research, where I can leverage my UX Design degree and personal experiences in science to explore the needs and behaviors of new audiences and define new markets. Based on my experience in film distribution and production, I believe storytelling is the most impactful way to communicate. In particular, I believe it is crucial to tell the story of those traditionally underserved by science to enhance inclusivity and allow others to see themselves navigating the future of science. My design work is committed to equity with a focus on accessible design.
