Hello! I am a social scientist and user experience researcher.
I’m interested in providing an accessible user experience for the public and finding relationships between people and and their environmental contexts (e.g., media) to promote social good.
I currently work at The Philadelphia Inquirer as our Senior UX Researcher on the product team.
My recent line of academic work involves exploring media influences of decision making using neuroimaging and biometric data at the Center for Applied Research in Decision Making through Fox Business School at Temple University. Here, I have collaborated with multiple labs at Temple University between the media and communication, psychology, and marketing departments. I also taught undergraduate courses and love this aspect of connecting research and life experiences. Training future researchers, and believing in open research principles are my favorite parts of the research and UX field.
My past experience involves K-12 public school teaching, public relations work, and small-business marketing. I am looking to work with driven teams who believe in mentoring, quality research, and scientific discovery through a biological lens.
I’d love to hear from you if you have ideas for my line of research. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @nickolene.
