BallotBud is one of my latest projects. It is a Facebook-based chatbot that guides users through the voter registration process. Born out of the Los Angeles Debug Politics Hackathon, it’s goal is to act as a potential solution to frustrations in the US political sphere.
A project performed for a Human-Computer Interaction course, fulfilling requirements for the Master of Information Science degree.
Tasked with producing a solution that would improve archival finding aids, our team chose to restructure and design all content with user needs at the forefront of decisions.
A recent project, the Los Angeles Housing Library is a thinktank currently in development.
It’s goals are: to gather housing related information produced by local agencies, serve as an information access point for policymakers, and reduce duplicate studies across governments.
