Hi there! I'm Maria-Paula ✨
I'm a User Experience Researcher and Designer passionate about finding solutions to make technology and designs more equitable, inclusive, and accessible for everyone. Currently, I'm pursuing my Master's in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Georgia Tech 🐝, and I'm looking for full-time UX opportunities after graduating in spring 2023.
My HCI journey began at Georgia State University🐾 where I graduated with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. During my time there, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to join a research lab working with social robotics and reading literacy. I collaborated with a cross-functional team to improve the design and learning experience to impact kindergarten literacy skills. My passion to understand what, when, why, and how led me to make a bond with UX 🕵🏻♀️.
When I'm not conducting research or designing, you can find me lifting weights at the gym🏋🏻♀️, or hanging out with my cat Kaya 🐈⬛!
