Hi! I'm Eevin 👋🏻

I'm a UX Researcher based in Champaign, IL.

I specialize in digital B2C products in EdTech, websites, non-profits, and video games, focusing on Accessibility and DEI in all phases of product development. Having built multiple programs from the ground up, I am also a keen people-first leader and strategist.

I have a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology (emphasis on applied human-computer interaction), which guarantees a next-level approach to our work together. Eleven years of high-quality university teaching also means that I know how to communicate, plan, assess, and iterate ad-hoc.

"Let's help our products work hard so that our users don't have to."

Site In Progress!

I'm in the process of updating my site and transferring content. Some information may be incomplete or missing, but this is temporary. I apologize for any inconvenience!

Core User Experience (UX) Skills

I apply my extensive training in psychology and HCI to improve the user experience in a variety of products and situations. Depending on the product, "users" can include end-users, customers, stakeholders, or research participants.

Mixed-Methods Research

I use a blend of methods to learn how users think, behave, perceive, and feel about their experiences with products. From planning a roadmap to workshopping results with stakeholders, I combine rigor and impact to prioritize our next steps.

Complex Products

From video games to VR brain dissections for med students, I've navigated some of the most difficult products out there. I'm equipped to ask the tough questions that only come with this kind of experience.

Research Strategy

I've developed Research Strategies for features, games, websites, LMS platforms, and e-books. I've worked with stakeholders varying from junior programmers to CCOs and CEOs to reduce risk and elevate ROI.

Information Architecture

Diagrams, diagrams, diagrams! In research, design, and education, one theme arises consistently: People organize their mental constructs (i.e., your products' features) using complex hierarchical systems. Knowing about their systems and designing for them reduces friction and churn.

Accessibility & DEI

I combine my deep experience in neuroscience, psychology, language, cultural diversity, and accessibility certification to help clients deliver equitable products. Knowing how to leverage your product for your users sets your brand apart from the rest!

Psychology & Neuroscience

Most of the work I did in my PhD was geared toward discovering the issues that different types of users experience with technology and designing for an accessible experience. With over 15 years of experience, I have tactical and strategic insights that are hard to find elsewhere.

"Satisfied consumers return just to use a product. They return for the whole experience."


Who have I worked with?


What do people have to say?
"Dr. Jennings is easily one of the most capable, observant, wonderful, and humble people I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She is adaptable to situations, learns new skills extremely quickly, and is able to use her deep understanding of psychology to leverage her research to create meaningful and impactful insights. She is thoughtful, mindful, kind, and simply just a joy to be around."
Kat Kingsley
Chief of Staff
"Eevin was great to work with. She developed several templates for our social media posts, and we are actively using them. She also put together a slide for a special film event, and we were very happy with how it turned out."
Fabi Hirsch Kruse
CEO and Founder
"Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful - It was beyond my expectation. Eevin is very skillful, she knows her job, she is readily available when you need her. She supported us beyond her duty call. She is really qualified and suitable for the job. Working with her was so motivating and we would like to do more projects with her."
Saeed W.
CEO and Founder
"This was very nice for decision-making. It allowed a high degree of parallel input that would have literally taken hours or days to get through using any kind of round-robin discussion."
Isaac V.
Director of Core Technology
"Eevin went above and beyond to use her skillsets in user research, data visualization and survey design (among many others!) to help every department when we worked together at Volition. Whether it was to help understand the needs of our summer intern group or to properly run a post mortem after a major game release, she was not only an expert on gathering the data, but also managing, aggregating, and displaying it in an easily digestible way that made all of us feel like our thoughts and feelings mattered."
Sarah Masuda
"The user experience is about more than KPIs. It's about designing for the whole person."
