Hello world!
I am a passionate UX researcher with a solid programming background from Canada.
My superpower is to breaking down complex problems into doable solutions to maintain the balance between users' satisfactions and business goals.

Always there is a way to find the answer, eh?

ITManager.net is a tech company in Ottawa. Their primary app helps network administrators to have real-time and reliable monitoring over computer networks. During the summer internship in 2020, I launched a competitive market analysis and conducted UX research for a new app feature. I proposed and designed a new graph-layout for representing network components.

VYRent is the first and only marketplace for luxury watch rentals. It is Airbnb but for watches! An agile in-house team developed our cross-platform mobile app, so we (the UX team) had the opportunity to collaborate more with them. Like other software projects, needs had changed during the development. As a UX supervisor, I tried to maintain the balance between new requirements, limitations and deadlines.

The phone multi-criteria decision model (MCDM) is a web-based single-page application that helps users find the best cellphone based on their preferences. This project uses VUE.js for the presentation layer and Node.js as the backend. The cellphones properties were collected by a web-scraping application that I developed specifically for this app.
