Hi

I'm Unma.

I'm a UX Researcher currently pursuing my Masters degree in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

I work with Dr. Karon MacLean in the SPIN (Sensory Perception and Interaction) lab at UBC, co-supervised by Dr. Tim Oberlander from the BC Children's Hospital Research Institute. ​My research interests lie primarily at the intersection of HCI and healthcare, often supported by interactive visualizations. 

 

I've previously been a UX Designer, Graphic Designer, Software Engineer, and a Web Developer - basically anything that involves coding and design - and love carrying over skills from one discipline to another. It's precisely these diverse experiences that enable me to be a more empathetic UX researcher!

 

In my free time, I wander around with my camera, or sketch stuff on my iPad

Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to know more!
