As you can see in my résumé I graduated with a degree in Industrial Design in 2002 and among other experiences I ran a design company in Brazil from 2004 until 2011, before coming to live in France.
I have experience with all stages of the software development lifecycle, from the preliminary research until product release: ethnographic research, task analysis, benchmarks, paper prototyping, interaction design, interface guidelines, heuristic evaluation, development of paper and computer based prototypes and user testing.
Experience with the identification of user needs, thoughts, emotions and motivations through empathy, in order to uncover opportunities for innovation in the user experience.
Experience with the development of questionnaires, recruitment of participants, execution of tests, analysis of results and writing of reports in English, French and Portuguese.
Qualitative evaluation of interfaces based on the ISO 9241's, Nielsen's and Scapin & Bastien's heuristics.
Experience on the definition of experimental protocols and in the execution of eye-tracking based tests.
Development of interfaces and interaction schemes with pencil on paper and also with software tools like Balsamiq, MS Visio, Axure RP and Omnigraffle.
Solid background on graphic design and more than 10 years of experience with the development of graphical user interfaces.
Excellent background on HTML5, CSS3 and JS, and also with content management systems in PHP and Mysql, with many projects developed.
For more than a year I was the technical leader of the web accessibility team of the central bank of Brazil, and I have developped many other WAI-ARIA projects.
