My specific role on the project

It was a project where roles changed accord with the projects necessities. Nonetheless, I played a researcher/strategist role transforming complex data into insights and insights into opportunities. In parallel, I worked with the graphic design team developing the content of the Library User Experience Design Toolkit.
