I'm Oorja (OR-JAH), a senior double-majoring in Human Centered Design & Engineering + Informatics at the University of Washington. I work part-time as a student UX designer in UW's Academic Experience Design & Delivery division where I help design and improve tools used by UW staff & students. Last summer I was a UX design intern at AT&T, where I worked on a feature for DirecTV Now and projects in AR/VR.
As a UX designer, I strive to really understand my users as much as possible. Using research insights, design tools (storyboards, scenarios, etc.), and/or user testing all allow me to be in a user's shoes and empathize with their needs.
In my free time I enjoy doodling at the edges of my notebook, watching in-depth movie critiques, scouting out the ice cream places, and making cosplay for upcoming anime/comic conventions!
