Android UX Engineer, Design

MAY '16 - CURRENT

Overview

From idea to product, I solve UX issues at the intersection of design and engineering. I find and further Google’s most innovative product concepts and bring them to life with design and engineering chops. I partner with engineers, researchers and designers to define, refine and deliver new products and exciting features.

  • Fast Pair, easy headphone pairing via BLE: owned the vision, hw+sw prototypes, interaction+visual design, normalization, worked with Nearby on implementation and final spec
  • Dismiss on capacitive, resistive and rotary headunits: design exploration, prototyping, iteration, share out and seed planting to launch for Android Auto Projected
  • Problem finding, ideation, design and exploration, prototyping, share out, seed planting, road mapping, resource allocation, production code
  • Interfacing with machine learning and probabilistic algorithms: finding, evaluating and restructuring how we interact with probabilistic systems
  • Front end: from Sketch to custom views, touch processing and smooth motion
  • Wireless tech: my demos have extensively used BLE advertising and GATT servers, hotspots, wifi direct, mDNS, Bluetooth A2DP & HFP profiles
  • Span of prototype fidelity: React Native equivalent, Android, embedded software, hardware
  • Teams: Android Auto, Nearby, Framework, System UI, Bluetooth, Chromecast, Activity Recognition, Soli
