Who this course is for:
- Product designers, UX designers, Product managers
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and decades of experience as a behavioral scientist, applying psychology to the design of digital products. I'm a consultant to Fortune 1000 companies, start-ups, and educational and government organizations.
A client once referred to me as "The Brain Lady", and it stuck. Probably because I like to teach and consult about brain science.
I'm currently the Founder and Principal of The Team W. I consult, coach, teach, and speak about behavioral science, brain science, psychology, design, innovation, and user experience. I've been lucky enough to travel around the world as a keynote speaker.
I am also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Wisconsin.
My clients include Disney, Amazon, The Mayo Clinic, Zappos, the Federal Trade Commission (USA), and the European Commission.
I like to write books, including: 100 Things Every Designer Needs To Know About People, How To Get People To Do Stuff, 100 Things Every Presenter Needs To Know About People, and Neuro Web Design: What makes them click? I blog at my own website and I blog for Psychology Today.
My work over the years has included the design of websites, software, medical devices, TV ads, physical devices, experiences, and physical spaces to make them persuasive, usable and motivating.
I live in Wisconsin, USA, with my husband. My two children are grown and “launched”. When not teaching, speaking, writing, or blogging, I perform in community theatre, sing jazz, read books, and I'm an avid movie watcher.
