user experience & interaction design
For my capstone project, I was inspired by my art history minor to create a mobile and print walking tour of public historic art sites in New York City.
I worked independently, with regular feedback and critiques from peers and professors, along with a faculty mentor from the art history department. I was selected to present my work at RISE:2019 (research, innovation, and scholarship expo). Straat was one of roughly 30 finalist projects selected out of over 450 presentations.
