The Design Exchange
I have been heavily involved in theDesignExchange, an online interactive portal for designers and researchers. The content on this portal is currently being used for 6 graduate-level courses at Haas School of Business and Berkeley Engineering as a valuable resource when teaching human-centered design methodology. Working alongside graduate students and professors at MIT, the Berkeley Institute for Design, and the Berkeley BEST Lab, I developed a framework for converting design papers and journal articles into case studies. For that I conducted user research and interviewed design educators at the university level to get a detailed understanding of our user base as well as inform future iterations of the user interface. In addition, I have been creating and writing design case-studies content for the platform, and managed a team of three undergraduate case-study writers.
Here are a few of the design case-studies that I have written and published on theDesignExchange:
- Older adults with multi-morbidity: medication management processes and design implications for personal health applications
- Mobile phone users in Kyrgyzstan: A case study of identifying user requirements for diverse users
- Mobile communication tools for a South African Deaf patient in a pharmacy context
