USER EXPERIENCE RESEARCH PORTFOLIO: ABOUT ME

Hello, my name is Victor (he/him/his). Welcome to my User Experience (UX) Research Portfolio.

 

I am an Applied Anthropology (M.A.) and Human Factors (M.S.) candidate (December 2021) at San Jose State University (SJSU) where I developed a specialization for Design Thinking research and strategy in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

This academic specialization has been amplified through professional training on rigorous, real-world UX projects.

UX RESEARCH APPROACH:

DESIGN THINKING

Through academic and professional training in applied behavioral and social sciences, I have curated a specialized foundation in the broad and multidisciplinary Design Thinking approach to UX Research.

I seek to use this theory and practice foundation to jumpstart a meaningful career in UX Research that extends far beyond myself. I am eager to contribute my expertise in a cross-functional team to better identify and solve complex problems.
