As a Designer, and a Doctor in Ergonomics, I specialized in approaches related to Domain Engineering and Model-based Systems Engineering, I mobilize knowledge and advanced tools to carry out innovative projects.
But all that started with my training as a philosopher and a cognitician. All this background allowed me to take apart theories and models in order to use them more wisely.
Design is no magic or some fancy data based I/O process. It's all about building actionable knowledge. It's not a science and it's not a craft, it's already a form of engineering.
And then, since it's always nice to feel like a Renaissance Man, I'm also an amateur chef, I can disassemble and reassemble a bike and I recently got into film photography.
At the heart of UX design lies the ability to observe and model user behaviour. Using proper data from qualitative and quantitative research I make predictive usage models that are valuable in order to assert product quality and identify friction points. I also use objective tools such as heuristics or general models in order to conduct accessibility audits that are oftenly precious when untertaking a product redesign.
The ability to have reliable technical reports and documentation has become a major challenge in the realization of digital projects. Great efforts from UX should come to fruition in useful informational tools such as mock-ups, diagrams, uml models so that the developers and the other team members can work effectively.
UX Design is part of a specific work culture with its own values and specificities. It's an incredibly powerful tool provided that everyone in the project understand what it means to take a human-centered approach and in this respect designers have a great educational and technical responsibility.
