I am a first year graduate student in the Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) program at the University of Washington. I graduated last May from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a BS in Economics and Statistics. I used to "play with" data in a highly hypothetical Economic world with a lot of assumptions. I am new to UX and feel excited about every new information I learn from this program and from my peers. I am hoping to become an UX designer in the future, but who knows what will happen next?
