The UX Linguist
Design—for the user, through the user.
I believe that the core of user experience lies in the intersection of language and culture. I am endlessly fascinated and inspired by the ways language reveals user values. I draw from linguistics and ethnography in my research to elicit findings that cultivate empathy and drive design with purpose.
The story of my recent volunteer project for easing the FAFSA experience for second language speakers of English using chatbots can be found here.
