UCI OpenCourseWare Assistant/UX Designer
UCI Extenstion (Irvine, CA)
June 2014 - July 2015
The UCI OpenCourseWare is a free learning platform that provides resources organized by UCI professors. My beginning role started with quality assurance for the front and back-end, but eventually progressed to becoming apart of the design team. As a UX Designer, I have the responsibility of creating simple and delightful user experiences utilizing principals of user-centered design. Having more available resources at UCI Extension improved my process by including more user research. More details on my work can be found here.
Back-end Developer (PHP/MySQL)
Radius Health (Newport Beach, CA)
March 2014 - April 2015
A responsive web app that enables you to read others' experiences with nearby doctors and share your own. My involvement with the software development was primarily on the back-end, but was heavily involved in all phases of the development cycle. Under the MVC architecture, I created scripts for the controllers while also integrating them to the front-end. I majorly contributed to the front-end design of the site through mockups and prototyping. Using a "mobile-first" approach and understanding the use cases resulted in intuitive designs that permits users to succeedingly search doctors and write reviews.More details on my work can be found here.

UX Designer/User Researcher
B.o.A.R.D [Bulletinboard of Accessible Remote Data] (Irvine, CA)
January - April 2014
Sponsored by our professor, my team and I protoyped B.o.A.R.D (Bulletinboard of Accessible Remote Data), a modern interpretation of the Bulletin Board which features an interactive touch screen interface that enables users to navigate and locate useful information regarding the UCI Campus and its student life. My role through this software project was user research and interaction design. As a fellow student at the time, finding users for interviewing and testing were easy to come by. Interview processes narrowed what information should be found on bulletinboard and how one user would use such technology. Using paper protoyping as a method for usability testing, I improved on the interaction design.More details on my work can be found here.
