Design Thinking Applied

As any designer will tell you, good design takes a lot of practice.

I found a problem that I'm passionate to solve, and I'm diving right in. I'm creating an independent study in collaboration with Yale School of Management's game theory professor Jidong Zhou, centered an studying, evaluating, and redesigning the bidding process for elective courses offered by Yale SOM.

As a comprehensive redesign, I'm working through the entire design process — researching existing aution systems that other schools employ, exploring other aution solutions in different environments, interviewing uses, ideating, prototyping, testing, iterating, and observing the results. The ultimate result of the course will be a redesigned system that the school can implement to make choosing classes a better process for both students and professors.
