Hi! Welcome to my little space in the internet. I'm an Information Management Master's student specializing in Data Science and Business Intelligence at the University of Washington.
I am interested in robust data infrastructure, data analytics, web development, communicating data through visualizations, and having design considerations at the forefront rather than at at end, especially in the context of information systems.
I have had 4 years of experience in database development and some part of it was in banking operations. Working on both sides on the organization helped me see the role of data right from creation to consumption and I believe these skills would help me liaise between business and technology and help organizations design for end-to-end goals.
I love the internet. Minified CSS? Responsive design? Perfect div alignments? Automated build/deploy? You get the idea. These are some my web dev projects. Hover to see responsive design, click code to go to the GitHub repository.
I am also interested in user focused product design, so I look a UX class in Winter 2017. I was introduced to the works of Dan Norman, Jacob Nielson and Edward Tufte among others. I explored UX skills and concepts like contextual inquiry, affinity diagrams, human, task and activity centered design, heuristic evaluation, personas, scenarios, user-testing and value sensitive design. This is a selected portfolio of my UX work.
I've been taking a few massive open online courses out of interest and to bolster by school education. Here's a list of all the MOOCs I have completed.
