Bringing human intuition to email.
I joined IBM Design in October 2015 as a member of IBM Collaboration Solutions (ICS), a B2B/SaaS division that develops enterprise messaging and content-collaboration software for knowledge workers.
During the first year and a half, I helped lead Verse Mail and Calendar into the cognitive era by leveraging machine learning to visualize the future intuition of messaging on web and mobile platforms.
I created this introductory video as a contextual primer for my design explorations below.
web + Mobile
Analyzes user behaviors with machine learning to stack related emails in a way that minimizes context-switching for increased focus
web + mobile
Makes email composition a breeze by analyzing communication patterns to suggest the most relevant recipients to address on an email
Turns a fragmented inbox into a series of fluid conversations by tying together messages and their reply chains

Connecting people, places, and things.
After a year and a half on Verse, I found myself promoted to ICS Connections, IBM’s enterprise software for organizational networking, content-creation, and collaboration.
I'm currently leading the customization of a new visual design language and co-leading the UX research and design of a new content service platform.

Supporting patients w/ Parkinson's disease.
At Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), I worked on an interdisciplinary team of 5 that empowered our client to realize her purpose as a medical device start-up by addressing white space in the biomedical wearables market for Parkinson's disease.
My human-centered research and innovative prototypes received a US Utility Patent and delivered the proof of concept that our client needed to win $25K in seed funding from Innovation Works as 1 of 6 start-ups accepted into the Pittsburgh accelerator, Alphalab Gear.
