<aside> 🔥 Hi, I'm Funmilayo. I am an aspiring UX Researcher passionate about leveraging Human-Centred Design (HCD) techniques to understand and address human problems. Welcome to my design portfolio!
What Have I done?
Hello, I am Funmilayo, officially known as Oluwafunmilayo Martha Obasa and I’m an aspiring UX Researcher looking forward to leveraging Human-Centred Design (HCD) techniques to understand and address human problems, particularly in the edtech field.
This journey in User Research began in May 2020 while Nigerian University lecturers went on strike. It was borne out of my preference for psychology: understanding human beings, their emotions, motivations and behaviours. Since then, I have parsed through courses on Coursera, the Interaction Design Foundation and YouTube, read books on research and design, participated in tech learning programs such as the Zuri Internship and She Code Africa mentorship program, and engaged in a few side projects.
I currently have some knowledge of qualitative and quantitative techniques. With both, I have conducted semi-structured interviews, designed surveys, analysed data statistically and with the thematic analysis method, and created visualisations such as personas, customer journey maps, empathy maps, and affinity diagrams that have helped portray whichever problem I was trying to solve at the given time. I also have some design knowledge. With that I have relayed my solutions by designing interfaces that portray them properly.
My background as a history student and writer has made me curious, detailed, and to consider past decisions and mistakes while researching for present solutions.
