👋 Hi, I'm Vera! I am a user experience and interface designer, and front-end coder.
💻 I am currently working at Deloitte's InsightStudio in Boston, designing analytics and cognitive capabilities for a variety of clients.
I've worked across multiple industries including: biotechnology, consumer products, and pharmaceuticals, as well as the U.S. DoD.
🧠 Before that, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and Cognitive and Brain Sciences from Tufts University.
📊 Much of my experience and interest is in information design and data visualization:
presenting complex information can be beautiful and, more importantly, should foster accurate and coherent understanding. I like to explore different libraries, looking for creative ways to visualize data.
🤝 I am also passionate about design and development collaboration: I think some of the biggest issues in product development arise due to barriers in communication between design and development teams, so creating a culture where designers and developers work closely in tandem is a huge step in creating better, user-centered products and services.
🌱 Some areas I'm excited to grow and learn more in are visual design, typography, and accessible/inclusive design.
✨ In my free time I like to explore and make art 🎨, bake bread 🥖, and climb rocks 🧗
