Hi there! I'm Maria-Paula ✨
I'm a User Experience Researcher passionate about finding solutions to make technology and designs more equitable, inclusive, and accessible for everyone.
I earned my Master's in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from Georgia Tech 🐝 in May 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 for understanding what, when why, and how led me to make a bond with UX Research🕵🏻♀️.
I'm currently at Pulse Labs, but when I'm not conducting research or designing, you can find me lifting weights at the gym🏋🏻♀️, or hanging out with my cat Kaya 🐈⬛!
