I'm a senior at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT who's passionate about design. My greatest interests lie in UI/UX, product, and human-centered design for social change.
Last year, I spent three months abroad studying product design at the Glasgow School of Art, where I had the opportunity to work with Scotland's NHS on service design projects. Now, I'm preparing for my senior thesis project on Feminist Human-Computer Interaction.
ABOUT MY MAJOR
I've had the unique opportunity to design my own major, and have chosen to create a holistic program in Interaction Design. My goal is to understand how people interact with technology and how to implement that knowledge into designing interfaces and products. I'm also studying the widespread impact of technology on our society.
My courses break down into three categories: Aesthetic Design (studio art, design theory); Technology (computer science, engineering); and the Human Experience (sociology, anthropology, psychology).
