Andrea Irwin finished her undergraduate degrees in Industrial Design and Human-Computer Interaction in May 2009 before beginning the accelerated MHCI program. As a Co-Design Lead on this year’s Omnyx team, she has worked to set design direction for the project through brainstorming, iterative testing, and other experimental methods. Andrea will also be working to establish the final aesthetic design for the interface. When applying this experience to future projects, she would like to pursue projects that include tangible interaction. In an effort to use both her passions, Andrea is looking for challenging work that marries smart design with good usability.
