I’m a twenty-one-year-old UX designer and researcher from Dublin. I study applied psychology in the Institute of Art Design and Technology in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. Applied psychology is a great course where I get to study traditional psychology and how we can apply it to design. This means modules in HCI, Usability, Information Design and Web Applications along with more traditional psychology fields such as developmental psychology and cognitive psychology. A lot of my research is in the HCI and cognitive fields, looking at how we can use cognitive theory to design better interaction experiences.
