The MHCI+D program at UW kicks off the autumn quarter with Immersion Studio, a week long design sprint completed by teams of three. Teams were challenged to consider how Computer-supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) could lower the barrier to becoming civically engaged. Our team created Milaap, an SMS carpool chatbot that connects folks without transportation in rural areas to volunteer drivers. Read my brief case study here.

HikeStart is a mobile app that encourages new hikers to get outside through incentivizing hiking with deals to local outdoor retailers. This mobile app concept was developed as part of UW Dubtech's fourth annual Protothon competition. Teams had three hours to create a design response that would encourage users to explore the outdoors. HikeStart won first place out of twenty teams!
