Visual Energy Training Exercise

User research, design, full-stack dev for NSF-funded research. The project began in February of 2020 and is ongoing.

Problem

Many people are not able to accurately estimate the amount of energy consumed by everyday household appliances. Based on prior research by the Attari Lab at Indiana University, this project is testing a new visual method for improving the average person's energy judgement.

Solution

The project has two key goals:

  1. Engage users and improve their understanding of energy usage
  2. Provide specific data to answer our research questions

My Role

My primary role on this team is the user research, design and development the full-stack VETE application.
