Allison Kosydar
Principal Human Factors and Usability Engineer

Alli first became interested in user research while working for a consulting firm that specialized in failure analysis and mechanical testing of medical devices.

Observing what happened after the device failed or after someone used it incorrectly led her straight to the discipline of user research — how better to prevent these kinds of device failures and injuries than applying a research-based user-centered process?

Since then, Alli has gained experience designing and developing innovative solutions, conducting end-to-end research, and performing user research and usability testing in a broad range of domains. But with a Bachelor’s in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University, she is especially skilled in medical device consulting and testing, along with human factors research in healthcare and clinical settings.

At Bresslergroup she applies a variety of research techniques, including formative and validation usability testing, UX design, ergonomic reviews, ethnographic studies, and market research to provide clients with recommendations for product improvements.

After graduating from Drexel, Alli earned a Masters in Human Factors and Applied Cognition from George Mason University. When she’s not obsessing about preventing device failure, she is most likely stand-up paddleboarding, watching 76ers basketball, or walking her dog.
