I am a UX designer and front-end developer based in the DC Metro area. Currently I am working for the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Institutes of Health. My job is to take very complex biomedical and genomic information and present in a more understandable, user-friendly way.
Most of my work involves the redesign of already existing web applications. The process starts with an analysis of the data and user needs. After that, designs are developed and tested by users. After getting user feedback, the designs are developed by a team of developers. Aside from the design, I also collaborate in the HTML, CSS and Jquery coding of applications.
From time to time, I create graphic designs like banners, business cards and stickers to promote the image and mission of NCBI in the biomedical community.
