PhD candidate at Princeton University
Social Psychology, UI/UX
BioHi! My name is Logan, and I graduated from Stanford in 2020 with a B.S. in Symbolic Systems and a minor in Spanish. My concentration was in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), which allowed me to combine psychology and computer science. Next, I attended Princeton and studied social psychology, receiving my M.A. in 2022. I've been a mentor at Polygence since 2021. I would like to mentor students with interests in psychology, HCI, sociology, or any combination of the three! In my free time, I am an avid juggler, and I have a YouTube channel where I make tutorials about how to juggle. I also love staying active by doing martial arts and lifting weights. I'm excited to talk about research and hobbies with my mentees!

User Interface (UI) Design Projects
During my undergraduate education, I took several courses in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The goal of HCI is to develop a User Interface (UI) that is intuitive and easy to use. To achieve this goal, developers must interview and get feedback from users of their technology. This is a collaborative and iterative process. An example of this type of project is designing a website. In HCI development, you listen to people actually using the website you designed and identify where they have issues. Next, you re-design the website and repeat the process again. This is only one type of HCI project -- there are many routes to explore!
