UX Research and Design
Lecturer and Senior Researcher,
AVF (2016 - 2017)
Jeunese is a creative and committed UX researcher who nurtures positive relationships with colleagues. At Africa's Voices Foundation (AVF), Jeunese helped to develop several platforms for textual analysis, led a research project with Well Told Story in Nairobi and provided general research support for the organisation. Using a thorough approach to design, she worked with users, developers and other researchers to improve efficiency of AVF platforms and research workflows. Jeunese left a mark of rigour in the organisation during its initial phase of growth.
Senior User Researcher, University of Cambridge Information Services (2017 - 2019)
Jeunese's background in academic Psychology research has equipped her with an analytical eye for detail and the ability to articulate her insights in a meaningful and actionable format. Jeunese's conscientious contribution to our work is borne out of her genuine interest and empathy for users' experience and desire to improve their ability to achieve their goals. I enjoy working with her, and her desire to learn and apply new skills is a great asset to our team.

Product Lead, Featurespace (2019)
Jeunese is a pleasure to work with. She is a gifted UX/UI researcher and is extremely adept in enabling product teams and business owners to focus on end-user and customer outcomes, whilst maximising business returns. Her broad intellect and unique approach to problem solving is often the key to identifying the best solutions for the challenges at hand.
She has excellent attention to detail. This is wonderfully balanced with a commitment to the wider context: you can trust Jeunese to approach problems with an open mind and a view to uncovering the best routes forwards. She works with integrity and passion, and shows consistent respect for those around her.
Chief Technology Owner, AVF (2016)
Jeunese was a conscientious and diligent colleague, who worked with me on both the analysis of social media data, as well as on user experience and UX testing of an internal tool. While dealing with disparate client demands and motivations, Jeunese maintained a fantastically (and well stated) user-centric view, even while involved in the technical development. She's always fun to have in the office and helped keep the team socialising, we occasionally all meet up even a year after leaving.
