Making digital platforms accessible to a wider audience through user experience, user interface design and good web practices.

I'm interested in how designers define their responsibilities within RSE contexts and how teams can improve collaboration across different roles.

Short Biography

I was born professionally as graphic designer and art director in the traditional media, but moved to web communication few years in. I can't say I had a plan to join Academia, I knew I wanted to work in a Research&Development environment and that happened when I became part of King's Digital Lab when it was established in 2015. I am now a Senior Research Software UI/UX Designer (a mouthful that is often shortened to RS UI/UX Designer!). My work revolves mainly around Digital Humanities and the wider Arts&Humanities research projects, but also Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences and occasionally with Mathematics and Informatics.

I design interactive data visualisations, search dashboards and more, working closely with the rest of the team.
