Winnie loves looking at products through different users’ eyes and seeing how people interact with the same product in different ways. That curiosity drives her work as a user researcher.
At Bresslergroup, Winnie contributes to the design and execution of both remote and in-person usability research. She drafts research protocols and moderators’ scripts in compliance with FDA guidance, translates risk analysis into usability testing protocol, and works with intended users to identify potential use errors that may result in harm to the patient or user.
Winnie earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics and Human Performance from Drexel University. In particular, a human factors and cognitive engineering course — and a poorly designed Lenovo Yoga 900 laptop charger — shaped her career. Both made her curious about how to make products more intuitive and user-friendly.
Outside of work, you can find Winnie drumming away in her family band, trying different food with friends and family (while updating her Instagram with half-eaten meals), hanging out with her ball python, watching animal documentaries, and putting together Gundam models.
