#28: Fruitful UX Research: Combining Science with the Messiness of the Real World
In this Episode, Amanda and Varun discuss how to implement Research in a way that is sustainable, valuable, and ethical. We talk about ways to research with cross-functional partners, the power of saying "I don't know" and acknowledging the implicit bias and challenges that come with research, annnnd Amanda talks about her UX wrestling persona.
Varun is cofounder and Head of Research at Apple & Banana where he believes that everyone can do fruitful research. Varun has spent his career immersed in psychology, technology and design at organizations like Facebook, Unitedhealth Group and Best Buy, along with rising startups across the country. When he’s not sharing perspectives, collaborations and applications of fruitful research, he can be seen teaching his dog how to roll over, going for bike rides and playing Last of Us 2.
