Spring 2017 - Spring 2019

This project includes design, development, and evaluation of a video annotation tool in surgical training. We evaluated the use of a video annotation tool (based on Microsoft Kinect) in surgical training using an A/B testing method which compared the video annotation condition with the traditional condition with only audio instruction.

 2015 - 2017

This project designs and implements a  new 3D-based user interface (based on our proposed interaction model) for interacting with Smart Environments. It further evaluates the 3D UI through user experience studies. Results show that our designed UI is usable and easy to learn.

Spring 2017

In this project, I conducted multiple methods to duct a usability analysis of is to assess the usability of the interface, identify challenging aspects of design and proposing a redesign to improve it. A high fidelity prototype and a usability test of the prototype is the outcome of this project.

Flying Fruite Cafe: UX and Graphic Design

Spring 2017

This project breaks down to illustration with respect to Cafe products (e.g. napkin holders, staff T-shirts, airpots, and order menu), and creating an interactive prototype of the Cafe mobile app.  

More details are coming soon!
