Hi! I'm Hazel.

I'm currently a design technologist at NPR based in Seattle, WA, where I lead research and design on the Digital Media podcast team. I've worked on podcast publishing initiatives ranging from designing sponsorship insertion tools for podcast producers to formulating a cross-department platform design strategy for podcast publishing.

I hold a BS in Cognitive Science with Specialization in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of California San Diego, and I graduated with department honors and distinction for completing an honors thesis. In addition to the human-centered design process, I have experience with conducting academic research and front-end development.

In my spare time, you can see me taking photos and trying to recreate restaurant recipes at home. Please reach out if you want to chat about design, food, or anything in between!
