UX Researcher Intern, LinkedIn 

Graduate Student, SJSU's Human Factors and Ergonomics Master's Program

I’m a first generation college graduate and a mother of two little girls. I graduated from San Jose State University (SJSU) in May, 2019 with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a double minor in Applied Computing for Behavioral and Social Sciences (ACBSS), and Human Systems Integration (HSI). During my undergraduate studies, I conducted research for SJSU’s Virtual Environments, Cognition, and Training Research (VECTR) lab, to improve individual and team performance in complex work settings. Following Fall 2019, I was accepted in SJSU’s Human Factors and Ergonomics Master’s program, where I study Human Factors with an emphasis and focus on User Experience (UX) and Interaction Design. I recently finished my internship with IBM as a UX Researcher and I am currently interning at Linkedin as a UX Researcher. In my downtime, I enjoy bike riding with my mini humans, trying new and delicious food, kick-boxing, and hanging out by the water.
