Expert Bio

Hey there! I'm Sruthi, and I'm thrilled to share a little bit about myself with you. My journey has taken me from the world of academic research to the exciting realm of UX research. It's been quite the adventure, and I'm here to tell you all about it. My expertise lies in transitioning into UX research from academic research. I've always had a passion for understanding human behavior and how we interact with technology. This curiosity led me to pursue a career in UX research, where I could combine my love for research with my desire to create meaningful user experiences. Let's dive into my professional journey. After graduating, I landed my first apprenticeship in UX research. It was an unpaid gig, but the experience was invaluable. From there, I joined the Product Hunt team, where I honed my skills and gained hands-on experience in the field. It was a whirlwind of learning and growth, and I'll always be grateful for that opportunity. After my time at Product Hunt, I took on a contractor role at Google in Health AI. Working with such a renowned company was a dream come true. I spent a year and a half there, soaking up knowledge and collaborating with brilliant minds. Currently, I'm a contractor at Bank of America, where I continue to contribute my expertise in banking. What sets me apart is my unique perspective and experience. I've navigated the transition from academia to industry, and I understand the challenges and opportunities that come with it. I'm well-equipped to provide advice and guidance to those who are looking to make a similar career change. If you're someone who wants to transition into UX research, especially from academia, I'm the ideal candidate for you. I've been there, and I know what it takes to succeed in this field. Together, we can navigate the intricacies of UX research and help you achieve your professional goals. I'm excited to connect with you and share my knowledge and experiences. Let's embark on this journey together and make a difference in the world of UX research.
