As an intern on this project you will be working closely with senior designers, research scientists, developers and emergency response professionals to help design novel user interface prototypes across form factors like mobile, tablet, desktop workstations and interactive tables and walls. These prototypes will drive adaptive data triage and decision support that allows for role and activity based situation awareness through a dynamic, trainable filtering system. Intern responsibilities will range from user research, driving user requirements, writing scenario and use cases, establishing workflows, designing user experiences, production and usability testing.
