Q&A with Veronica Reyero, UX researcher @ Cervest

How do you think anthropological approaches can help technology companies to design human-centred experiences?

Anthropology and other social sciences can help tech developers and designers to build products that respect our human capabilities, strengths and needs while recognising that these are not the same across all human groups. Anthropologists typically do ethnographic studies to understand how people live, work, build relationships with each other, make sense of their lives and thrive in the world.

What are you looking forward to at Women of  Silicon Roundabout?

I’m both looking forward to sharing my own talk, which is a subject I’m really passionate about, and connecting with the amazing attendees at the conference. There are a couple of talks that sound fantastic, there’s a talk by Sharon Moore, ‘Fascinating Things That Anyone Can Do’, which sounds amazing. Also all the content on communication, as I feel like communication is something we can always improve on all the time.
