Catalina Naranjo-Bock

Currently, I am a Senior User Experience Researcher and Manager at Google, where I lead UX research with video creators at YouTube: all the way from short filmmakers to people that create channels and brands that become famous worldwide.

I conduct user experience research across all stages of the product development process to better inform design decisions and provide the best user experience possible. My work spans all the way from foundational and strategic research to very tactical usability studies.

Because of my background as a designer turned researcher, I move seamlessly between the UX design and research worlds and have a thorough understanding of the product development process and how to implement impactful user
research throughout.

I have been part of creative teams in the the US, Europe, Canada, and South America at companies like Google, Yahoo, LEGO, Nickelodeon, and Intel. I am also the author of multiple articles and talks on the user experience field, as well as a mentor at Stanford University.
