Careers for PhDs: UX Research

About This Event

Among the most rapidly growing and dynamic job sectors in which to apply your doctoral-level research background is the UX (User Experience) domain.

A panel of PhD-holding UX researchers will describe their current and former work in the sector (including tech industry, nonprofits, government, health care, VR, ed tech, consulting and more) and how they leveraged their doctoral training to access this rewarding and intellectually stimulating career path. The Panelists: Emily Levitt, UX Researcher, Google (Cornell PhD, Cultural Anthropology) Ashley Ruba, UX Researcher, Meta Reality Labs (U of Washington PhD, Psychology) Lina Žigelytė, Senior UX Researcher, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (U of Rochester PhD, Visual & Cultural Studies)
