Volcano Hazards Lab
PACIFIC SCIENCE CENTER – SEATTLE, WA
This is an installation piece. View app online
Create a touch-screen app to teach users basic facts and the hazards of local volcanoes in Washington state. Users are able to create their own virtual volcano by manipulating magma viscosity and gas volume, then watch the eruption animate.
Collaboration with PSC exhibit team on exhibition concept development, exhibition vision and goals, interactive and multimedia development and production. Worked with USGS Outreach on volcano facts and accuarcy.
This app is part of the local content for the Pompeii exhibit. We worked on a very tight timeline to create an interactive piece that fits with the visual style and message of the rest of the exhibit.

UX Design: My Cambrian Aquarium
My Cambrian Aquarium is an educational website about the Cambrian period of Earth’s history. It is my master’s thesis project. The project includes an interactive timeline and virtual aquarium game. I designed the entire user experience, from conducting research to diagramming use case scenarios and information architecture, to user testing and analysis. Read more about my thesis project.
For PDF Link, I created a dynamic, database-driven web application using XHTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. It is a tool for students and
researchers to upload, tag and share PDF files so that they can be easily organized and shared online.
UX Design: Diverse Design
Diverse Design was a group project. It fulfilled a class assignment to design an online learning tool focused on usability. I designed the site wire frames and information architecture, as well as the layout of the second-level pages and account interface. I programmed site prototype using HTML, CSS and PHP (it is not a fully-functioning web site, but a high-fidelity prototype).
