Resume

I am a Senior UX Designer with special interest in VR. Research and test driven design are the core principles of my work, whether working on my own or within a design team.

My most recent commercial projects in VR and AR include mobile FPS game and an AR piano learning experience. I have also done some individual research and exploration in UX for VR. Feel free to check out some of my posts on Medium: https://medium.com/@anastasiiaku
