Ndewo! (Meaning “Welcome” or “Hello” in my mother tongue: Igbo). I'm Vanessa!
I am a Master's student studying Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). I hold a B.S. in Computer Science from UMD (Go Terps!) . My research interests include: Wearable Technology/E-textiles, Tangible Interactive Computing, Making, DIY, Hackathons, Ubiquitous Computing, and Broadening Participation and Perceptions in Computer Science.
I currently work as a research assistant in the Human-Computer Interaction Lab collaborating on BodyVis which focuses on designing and implementing wearable e-textile prototypes with real-time physiological sensing and visualization to engage and motivate children in learning about the human body.
Currently, I am seeking internship opportunities in the UX/UI field. You can use my website to browse through my projects, download my resume/CV, connect with me, or even provide constructive criticism on my designs, including the design of my website, via the contact form. I believe there’s always room for improvement in design, so I am open to and ENCOURAGE your feedback. I look forward to hearing back from you soon!
