The Broad Human Factors/Ergonomics Field: from UX to Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders Research
Includes a Live Event on 06/28/2022 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Join us on Tuesday, June 28 to hear two experts discuss various applications of human factors/ergonomics. Dr. Lee will talk about her experience as a quantitative user experience researcher at Google. Learn what UX researchers do at Google, what “Quant” UX researchers do, and where to find resources and opportunities. Dr. Bao will discuss his journey in developing a workload calculator, which includes a large commercial janitorial workload project mandated by the Washington State Legislature.
