HFES 2016 - Washington DC
The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society holds an annual conference for academics and industry professionals. This was my first academic conference as a graduate student. Pictured above, my cohort from Virginia Tech was presented the "Gold" award for our active efforts as a local HFES chapter. In addition, two teammates (Zoey and Arisa) and I participated in the Guerilla Usability Warfare Challenge. We won "Most Creative" for our app an effort to redesign the Wedding Wire mobile app. The conference was a great success, made some valuable connections and some of my colleagues even landed jobs.
