Research Work

I've worked on qualitative and quantitative research projects for the past 5 years with topics ranging from smart home technologies, mobile applications, to car infotainment systems. I also have experience translating research findings to design recommendations. 

 

I provide a brief introduction to these projects and would always love to chat more:)
