My time is split between supporting a dynamic, agile team with their end-to-end generative and evaluative research needs, as well as assisting the organization at large with research enablement. Within the SCRUM team, I am responsible for identifying research needs, planning and executing research, and delivering actionable insights. As part of my enablement efforts, I support researchers, Product Managers (PMs), and non-researchers (PWdRs) with their respective research needs. This involves providing them with tools, templates, frameworks, and process improvements to help them achieve their goals of data-driven product development, whether or not they have a dedicated researcher.
I led an entrepreneurial project (a GPT-3 - conversational AI - Brainstorming partner) planning, running and analysing over 20 research activities and experiments. Alongside the regular research activities, I also fulfilled a role of a mentor, where I ensured my teammates are enabled to participate in research activities.
