I’m a first year graduate student at DePaul University studying Human-Computer Interaction with a concentration in UX/UI Design.
Before that, I studied at the University of Florida where I graduated Suma Cum Laude in Anthropology with a minor in International Studies. I now reside in Washington D.C. where I interned at the Smithsonian Institution, and worked as a Social Media Manager.
I have always been intrigued in how people interact with each other and with technology. With a background in interest in graphic design, I thought I could combine the two!
This application idea is inspired to help you shop more efficiently by calculating a route through your local grocery store. The app will help reduce time spent searching for what you need, and create an efficient and intuitive route through the store while taking into consideration frozen or refrigerated items on your list.
The LOCAL travel project seeks to provide traveler’s a one-stop-shop to directly book excursions for their next vacation. The system provides a streamlined and easy trip-planning experience for all levels of travelers. It also gives travelers a way to connect with local tour guides to get tips and recommendations to get the true local experience of their destination.
To create a more streamlined and user friendly version of Waze, we redesigned the workflow of a target user’s interaction and expectation for the application. We added the ability to search for destinations using characteristics of the destination, and a more streamlined way for users to view and change their routes based on traffic or other impediments.
