Twitter Data Analysis

In Fall 2020, the final group project in Problem Solving With Data asked us to use newly-learned R and Python skills to analyze tweets to answer self-selected research questions aimed at addressing some kind of social good. My two-person team opted to look into Disability Twitter, a topic I proposed. I also pulled, filtered, and merged the data, as well as performing a large chunk of the content analysis and writing the corresponding sections of the report.

While there are many aspects of the analysis I would do differently under other circumstances (see p. 28), it was a great opportunity to match my interest in/knowledge of a Twitter community with developing technical skills.

UX Prototyping & Evaluation

In Spring 2020, my Web Usability class asked us to practice design prototyping techniques on a variety of web interfaces. For the final project, we reported on a web usability “problem” and tested possible solutions. While my ability to test the prototype thoroughly was limited due to COVID-19 (as noted in the paper), the experience was an informative one.

Abstract: This project addresses user problems with browsing recipe search results that meet highly specific individual needs by prototyping a modal panel experience for filters, suggested refinements, and pages containing extracted source and recipe information.
