6 years International Experience
My aim is to improve quality of life by studying how others live, involving users in research, and testing new designs in the field. Specifically, I research how design influences user perception and decision making within the fields of human health and transportation.
I am completing a PhD in Consumer and Design Sciences at Auburn. My research is rooted in aesthetic theory and centers on consumer perspectives relating to automotive design.
I am an active proponent of consumer collaboration throughout product design and development. This supports relevant solutions and also generates new insights for further improvement.
International environments have become a natural part of my life. I’ve lived in Taiwan for 6 years and have engaged in research & product management across four continents.
On the design side, I’ve partnered with organizations to shape their brand identities for maximum relevance. Leveraging quick sketching/mapping abilities, I help clients and coworkers spark life into their ideas.
