As UX researchers, we play a critical role to ensure all research participants feel comfortable and respected. For those in the accessibility (a11y) community, we are cognizant of the variety of accommodations that may need to be employed throughout the participant...
Korey has 15 years of experience in UX and HF research. He started in automotive UX working at Daimler to improve the design of vehicle cockpits and in-vehicle systems. During graduate school he applied the principles of human factors engineering to the problem of user authentication, creating a novel graphical authentication mechanism for which he holds a patent.
Over the course of the past 10 years, Korey first developed and managed the medical device human factors practice for User Centric, and continued to do so on a larger scale when User Centric was acquired by GfK. In his tenure across both organizations, the medical device human factors practice grew from a handful of formative and summative usability tests each year to over 100 annual research and design engagements spanning the entire medical and drug delivery device development process. The expansion of this practice required the development of robust internal training programs to establish adherence to human factors principles and best practices.
Most recently, Korey has left GfK and founded Bold Insight. Korey has a passion for making medical devices safer and more effective through the application of HFE/UE, and also for establishing and maintaining an organizational culture that supports the development of expert HF practitioners – both of which are central to the mission of Bold Insight. Korey is a contributing author to industry standards, regularly speaks at national and international conferences, and has an MS in Human Factors Psychology from the University of Idaho.
