Greetings, I’m Fernando Travieso.
Thanks for visiting my website where I display a selection of projects I have led and produced over the years alongside many other talented professionals. Here, I also share thoughts that I present in talks and seminars used as a starting point for scientific research which later on take the shape of papers to be published in scientific journals.
I am a both a designer and researcher of human-computer interaction and user experience with strong credentials in projects across large scale desktop, tablet, and mobile projects, with an exemplary track record curating ground-breaking, interactive solutions that meet business objectives and provide a refined experience for the user.
As a key member of UX teams, I use my experience and talents in collaborative, Agile development environments to deliver great experiences across mobile, tablet, and desktop.
Working on core platform projects I have been exposed to the full breadth of the business to deliver solutions on both niche and cutting edge IT infrastructures.
As an enthusiastic, driven UX practitioner I lead teams to get under the skin of the business to understand requirements and create experiences to the highest standards.
I have a deep passion for working in the technology industry and truly enjoy working with both designers and engineers in pursue of making tools that can enhance people's lives.
At the moment, I am based in Montevideo (Uruguay) where I work as an Assistant Professor at Universidad ORT Uruguay, teaching advanced students of design and engineering how to build mobile apps and imbue them with the principles and practices of user experience design. My main areas of interest are the power of computational design and the persuasive power of digital technologies. This includes the design, research, and analysis of interactive computing products and services (computers, mobile phones, websites, smartwatches, wireless technologies, mobile applications, video games, autonomous cars, etc.) created with the capacity and the purpose of changing people’s attitudes or behaviors.
