Hello! My name is Lucy and I am an expert qualitative researcher with strong foundational knowledge in quantitative research. I have a Ph.D. in Communication Studies with an emphasis on interpersonal communication and game studies. I am transitioning out of academia and into the world of UX because my goal is to make my research impactful to people and incite real-time change. I am currently working as a freelance UX researcher and university instructor and honing my UX research skills by working with indie app and game developers and attending workshops and conferences in UX research and design.

In my free time, you can find me playing video games, shooting archery, jamming on the shamisen, doing taiko drumming, playing Dungeons & Dragons, or hanging out with my cat, Robert Meowny Jr. Have a look around my website and get to know me!
