"Great products live at the intersection of people and data."
I have worked in both academia and industry, am experienced with both qualitative and quantitative methods, and have collaborated in fields as diverse as medicine, neuroscience, travel, and video games.

A scientist at heart, I hope to use my knowledge, skills, and experience to quantify the user experience and make things that are useful, useable, and delightful.
