I’m a user experience researcher on the People, Places & Things team specializing in research on profile. Prior to Facebook, I spent time in technology consulting, design and the non-profit world with a consistent emphasis on applying design and user-centered methodology to building software products. As a consultant at Accenture I worked with organizations including Microsoft, the International Red Cross, and the Gates Foundation to help identify needs and design custom software applications to support their digital initiatives. Most recently, I earned an M.A. in the Learning, Design, and Technology program at Stanford, which combined my interest and experience in technology with design and user research curriculum at the Stanford d.School.
