Getting into UX research

Hi everyone,

I'm a recent psych graduate and I'm wondering how people have transitioned from academic research in the social sciences to UX research. To those who have done it, what are the similarities and differences between the two areas of research (in terms of skills required, working environment, work life, etc.)? What were the steps you took to break into UX research? I'm thinking of applying to HCI masters programs like CMU, DePaul, and UMich. Are there other schools I should consider if I'd only like to be conducting UX research?

Sneak peak at a realtime, collaborative research and analytics app-launches next week

We're really excited to show a sneak peak at our real-time, collaborative, team-based decision app we're launching next week. We've been working on this app in stealth mode for a little over a year now. The app was designed for people who conduct UX research or are involved in product/service design.
