Hi! I’m Eureka 👋
I am a User Experience Researcher at YouTube in Google Switzerland 📹🇨🇭. I lead research on Creator Music, a new feature that will expand creators' access to copyrighted music (read on TechCrunch). My strengths are in mixed-methods research on new products, combining quantitative data with rich qualitative insights and aligning teams to achieve user-driven goals.
Before YouTube, I was a researcher studying online work, the gig economy, and gender equity. Most recently, I was in Japan doing a postdoc at Tokyo College in the University of Tokyo, where I worked with Dr. Hideaki Kuzuoka in the Cyber Interface Lab and Dr. Naomi Yamashita at NTT. I was also a Visiting Researcher at Carnegie Mellon University's Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) with Dr. Laura Dabbish. I earned my PhD in Technology and Social Behavior at Northwestern University under Dr. Elizabeth Gerber in the Delta Lab.
Before that, I led UX research efforts on the AI User Research team at Facebook and at online design tool, Piktochart.
Outside of Work
You can find me exploring Switzerland, practicing guitar, dreaming of Penang laksa, taking dance/yoga classes, or looking for a beach! よろしくお願いいたします。🎸🩰🍜🏞️
