Hi,

I am a PhD candidate in the Center for HCI and Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I plan on finishing my PhD work by December 2010. I would be interested in learning more about the social experience designer position at RIM.

My own work—focusing on design artifacts and storyboarding—and my previous user research internship experiences at IBM Research have allowed me to develop extensive user research skills. Over the years, I have developed expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods in lab, remote, and field environments. Interviews, surveys, video analysis, heuristics, scenarios, participatory design, and log analysis are examples of some of the methods I have used. These skills inform exploratory research or existing designs in the form of storyboards or wireframes. I have come to understand when particular methods should be used and how to quickly deliver actionable recommendations and takeaway messages to product teams.

To give you a clearer picture of my experience, I am attaching my resume and portfolio for consideration. Please feel free to contact me if you need anything else. I will gladly provide references upon request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Shahtab Wahid
