My name is Sylvia Bargellini. I’m a driven user researcher with training in industrial design. I relish opportunities to solve complex human-centered design challenges. My background helps me to create valuable, actionable insights from research and to effectively communicate them back to designers, engineers and other stakeholders. I can deliver:

  • Strategic thinking around all product user experience and interaction

  • Actionable user-centric research findings

  • Artifacts, like user scenarios and personas, which create empathy

  • Timely and thoughtful work

Sylvia is a pleasure to work with, extremely sharp, keenly observant with fantastic attention to minute details. I worked alongside her in a UX/ID setting and learned so much in the process. I would happily work with her again.

Sylvia was a delight to work with on a number projects. We worked most closely on a clinical study focused on the latest Proteus Digital Health wearable sensor in combination with our digital pills. During this project she showed her incredible work ethic and can do attitude to manage all the user experience logistics required to launch and run the clinical study.

I highly recommend Sylvia and would love the chance to work with her again!
