International Business Machines
IBM Design is one of the newest and widely growing organizations within IBM. Integrating methods such as design thinking, user-centric design, and user research, we focus on creating great experiences for our users. As part of the first 60 hires in 2013, I have witnessed and contributed to the immense growth and effect of the organization reflected on IBM. I was deployed to the cybersecurity division and contributed my skills as a software technologist and user experience designer. My official IBM title is "Advisory Desiger".
I am now a design lead in the Emerging Technologies and Sciences group in IBM Research; focusing on the IBM Watson IoT portfolio. I help researchers, and engineers create symbiotic relationships between the technology in focus and the intended audience. Some of the projects I have worked on include, but not limited to:
- Quantum Computing
- Physical Installations
- Disability Assistance
Other than my primary role as a designer and technologist, I contribute to a number of side projects at IBM. Recently, I have been cultivating and protecting IBM’s intellectual property as an evaluator in one of IBM's Invention Development Teams by reviewing inventions proposed by fellow employees worldwide.
