UX/UI Design + iOS Development

Duet is an event-first matchmaking iOS app that revolutionizes the way we meet new people. By leveraging common music tastes and interests in local events, it provides a beautiful and intuitive way for users to develop strong and long-lasting connections.

Duet was designed along with 5 others in a UX course at UC San Diego. Throughout the 10-week process, my team and I conducted user research and testing, while creating various personas, storyboards, and prototypes, to design the ideal solution to our problem.

UI Design + Android Developement + Agile Methodology

FitKit is an all-in-one health application developed for the Android platform. By keeping track of a basic health profile, BMI, and weekly calories, it aims to provide tips to guide users towards a healthier lifestyle.

The application was developed using Java in Android Studio and utilizes Parse as a backend for handling user information. Using Agile methodology, our team of 5 implemented FitKit with weekly iterations involving gathering requirements, designing, coding, and testing. After weeks of iterating and stand-up meetings, our team was able to successfully complete key user stories and deliver a functional product to the customer.
