Tech Done Different [Ep 39]: Human-centered Design

How do we build things with the user in mind? How do we marry convenience and usability? How do we make the most secure way also be the path of least resistance? As a security researcher focused on human-centered design, Maritza Johnson studies these questions every day. She joins Tech Done Different to share insights from both her research, and her forthcoming center at University of San Diego.

You’ll learn:
– what human-centered design is, and why it matters
– why users are lazy, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing
– what evolutionary purpose cognitive bias plays
– how to think about the intersection of security and simplicity
