Hi, I'm Zach Cohen

I'm a user experience researcher interested in leveraging technology for a healthier and more sustainable future. I work at Boston Children's Hospital as a digital health user experience researcher with the goal of improving the patient experience of our digital products and services.

I'm passionate about and enjoy learning, writing, and speaking about the fuzzy, more abstract concepts of design and technology philosophy as well as the ethical applications of emerging technologies in sociotechnical systems.

I spend my free time writing, reading, cooking, and taking photos.

More about my background

I earned my graduate degree in Human Factors in Information Design at Bentley University, which focused on human behavior and research methods relative to product design, universal accessibility, usability, and the user experience.

My professional work has been focused on complex, enterprise applications. I enjoy tackling these challenges as I have the opportunity to collaborate with areas of the entire product team, from strategy and research to implementation and continued growth.

I've always been focused on understanding how people interact with their environment, each other, and themselves. This led me down a path of studying spatial design, psychology, and philosophy. While pursuing my undergraduate degree I discovered my passion for and solidified my foundation in experience design, interdisciplinary research, and art-based research methods.
