Jackie Weber
Human-Computer Interaction, Carnegie Mellon University
Cognitive Science, minor in Psychology from Wellesley College
Experience Designer at Rosetta
HelpDesk Consultant at Wellesley College;
Human Factors intern at Charles River Analytics


Work:
I work as a consultant at Rosetta in Cleveland, for a wide variety of clients. I create positive user experiences and increase conversion by working closely with a multi-disciplinary team throughout projects (discovery, design, build, and beyond). My clients include national and international companies within the financial, insurance, and ecommerce industries.

Working at the Wellesley Faculty/Staff HelpDesk allowed me to see firsthand the unnecessary and frustrating difficulties that users face. I also spent two summers as a human factors intern at Charles River Analytics, analyzing, designing, and programming software.

Interests:
I became interested in HCI several years ago when I took an 'Introduction to HCI' course at Brandeis University, and read The Design of Everyday Things by Donald Norman. Having long held the dual interests of psychology and computer science, HCI seemed like a wonderful combination of the two. As I became more interested in design, it was clear to me that my future was in HCI.

Education:
I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Master's in Human Computer Interaction in December, 2008.

For undergrad, I graduated from Wellesley College in 2007 with a degree in Cognitive Science, with a minor in Psychology.


Inspiration:
While I've drawn inspiration from a number of sources for this website, these are a few particularly notable ones: Bulletproof Design, by Dan Cederholm; blueprint css; and BgPatterns.
