8+ years of research & design prototyping for user-centered interfaces of digital & social reading. Data-driven design through user research, usability testing, heuristic creation, contextual inquiry; wireframing, rapid prototyping; and site analytics, information visualization, and analysis/application of gathered data.
Grounded on a strong research background: Information M.S. (human-computer interaction & digital humanities; University of Michigan 2010) and Ph.D. (digital humanities interfaces & literature; University of Maryland 2015). 6 years collaborating with interdisciplinary teams at one of the world's top research centers for the digital humanities (e.g. digital tools for book reading and research).
I'm a pragmatic dreamer skilled at thinking big but delivering now, as with my latest project InfiniteUlysses.com: a digital+social reading platform designed to customize a reading experience to each of hypothetical millions of users, but also in use right now by hundreds of real readers.
