I’m a UX researcher and experimental psychologist working on the Facebook Interfaces research team. Our team uses quantitative and qualitative methods to create a high-quality Facebook experience on every device and interface. Before joining Facebook, I spent most of my college years as an artisan barista in Mountain View, worked in neuroscience at Stanford and then as a UX researcher at HP. I earned my MA in Experimental Psychology at San Jose State University where I bridged psychology and human factors to do a thesis project on the importance of user experience variables in predicting psychological outcomes of video game play.
