People use digital interfaces everywhere – if users are mobile, research must be mobile too! Join Kathi Kaiser, co-founder and partner at Centralis, as she shares the why, when, where, and how of mobile UX research. Told through first-hand stories of user research on boats, in train stations, at shopping malls, and in museums, and you’ll learn how to decide where research should be conducted and how to design studies to make the most of your research time and budget. Come join us for this fun, light-hearted and informative talk!
Kathi Kaiser is co-founder and partner at Centralis, Chicago’s leading UX research and design firm. Kathi leads a top-notch team in creating great user experiences for global clients including Sony, LexisNexis and Warner Bros., as well as Chicago area institutions like the Regional Transit Authority and the Field Museum. Kathi applies the principles of user-centered design to all aspects of her work, including growing a garage-based start-up into one of the industry’s most successful UX agencies.
