Our continued efforts to understand what’s possible and what’s the best way to serve up content and information.

Recap from the last post: We came up with a plan to test our Mid-Fi Prototypes and synthesis those insights to understand what improvements we could make. A few members of the team worked on understanding what a final tech prototype could be!

Design: Further Understanding the System Details

In efforts to clarify how certain pieces of content would be served up to a user’s feed, we took some time to map out the system and really understand what’s going on behind the scenes.

Our first step to understanding was getting all our questions out and organizing them. We organized questions first by system feature, then…


The messy transition from Research to Design

Recap from the last post: We took last week to synthesize all the qualitative research from student workshops to working adult interviews. We created many artifacts to visualize and understands our insights from research.

Last week we created a few different resources to organize our research thoughts and insights: our second affinity diagram, identified student archetypes, and an understanding of how working adults arrive in career positions they are really happy with. Our next step was to figure out…

How would all of these rich insights and data points manifest in our designs towards a preferable future for career planning?

Exploring the challenge of future workforce shortages and our takeaways from a successful client kickoff

Hey there! Here’s a tl;dr from the last post: I introduced the team and discussed how we defined team dynamic based on individual goals and skills. Now, let’s get to why we’re all here and how we kicked off with gumption.

“What do you want to do with your life?”

You’ve probably thought about this more than once. But I want you to reminisce back to your high school or middle school days — how did you go about answering it back then? It’s a loaded question with a lot to unpack…especially for a teenage student. This is a large part of what we’ll be exploring.


Introducing the team and establishing a strong foundation for our capstone project

Industry clients. Five MHCI students. One difficult open problem. Seven months to design a relevant solution.

Since before even beginning the MHCI journey we’ve been hearing non-stop about the capstone project that starts off in the Spring semester. It’s not only a large part of the MHCI curriculum, but a full project start to finish and our chance to apply all the combined skills we have learned in MHCI, and in life. That said, you can imagine the anticipation leading up the morning of Monday January 15th, when the team assignment emails came through.

So without further ado…

If you’re not a skydiver you’re probably thinking “Who in their right mind would jump out of a perfectly good airplane?!”. And trust me…we get asked that a ton. But it’s not just about getting your butt out of that plane, it’s also the lifestyle and community that inevitably come with the sport. Skydiving has greatly influenced the way I view and handle my life.

That may sound silly, but here’s why:

Skydiving is a sport that never ends…

April this year, I finally made it over to Colorado to visit some pretty close friends… shout out to Radina & Zaid!!

We drank. We ate. we skied. It was a pretty memorable time. I also took a crazy amount of pictures…all of which I’ve been procrastinating on editing and posting. Eventually I’ll get around to that. But in the meantime, I (very schloppily) put together a quick video of random clips throughout the trip! Take a quick peak:

Hometown Feels

Ever since I left St. Pete in 2009, it has become quite the little hidden treasure of Florida. Brimming with beauty and small town charm, it’s difficult to ignore the urge to visit. So in efforts to cross off some long overdue bucket-list items and celebrate my birthday (a month late…), a friend and I planned a day trip.

Early Sunday March 15th, Francesca and I picked up some coffee and croissants in Thorton Park and started the two hour…


On moving from Gainesville

This post was originally published on August 3, 2014 on www.radha-nath.com. On February 3, 2017 it was migrated to Medium.

I know my leave was unexpectedly sudden, but we knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), it’s sooner. When people ask where I’m going, my response is still “I don’t know, I guess ‘home’ for a bit.”. But, in all honesty, it actually just feels like I’m leaving home. Over the last five years, I think it’s safe to say that you know me better than any city out there (even if St. …

Introduction

(Feel free to skip this part.)

I’ve been a server on-and-off ever since I was seventeen. For anyone that has worked in the service business, I’m sure you know the struggle that comes along with the industry. But if you don’t, here is just a tiny glimpse:

Most of the money we earn come from tips. These depend on a variety of factors: Serving section, lunch/dinner shift, time of year, weather, size of party. Just naming a few
