I am a part of Texas Immersive, which is a highly selective advertising specialization program at UT that blends emerging technology with hands-on learning in research, collaboration, prototyping, storytelling, coding, and design. Students work in teams to turn real-world problems into interactive, memorable, and relevant user experiences, preparing them for careers in advertising, entertainment, technology, retail, and professional services.
Design user experiences and implement immersive technologies (e.g., AR/VR) as a student consultant in the 2020 cohort of the Texas Immersive
As a UX designer, I played a pivotal role in developing audience personas that were central to the project's success. I leveraged my research skills to conduct user interviews and uncover audience motivations, intentions, and pain points. I then used these insights to formulate actionable and compelling personas.
