Kathleen Hwang

I have a bachelors in Psychology from UCLA with a minor in Disability Studies. Currently I am an Interaction Design student at Santa Monica College. I specialize in user research and design by understanding the goals, needs, feelings and motivations of users. Before studying design, I worked as a behavior therapist and independent living coach. My experience as an individual with disabilities and my experiences working with similar individuals has opened my eyes to the lack of accessibility in tech. As a designer and researcher, my goal is to improve user experience and accessibility through inclusive design for individuals with disabilities.
