Avery is about to graduate from the University of Washington with a degree in Human Centered Design and Engineering, with a focus on User Research. In academia, she led UW’s research team for three years as they competed in GM’s EcoCAR Mobility Competition. Most recently, she interned at Uber as a User Researcher and is currently conducting research with Microsoft’s Hololens group. Forging meaningful connections with users to create tangible product development is what excites her most about User Research, and she’s looking forward to her postgrad research journey! Outside of school/work, she’s a student-athlete and loves backpacking!
