Hi, I’m Oloff
I am a User Experience (UX) Specialist in the LX Labs team at Onlea, where I apply user-centered methods in uncovering learner needs and evaluating learning experiences. I have diverse experience in UX research and in the e-learning space. In any project I take on, I always aim to develop actionable, data-driven insights which champion the voice of the user, while continuously learning.
I hold a master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia (UBC) where I was supervised by Dongwook Yoon. As a graduate researcher, I was part of the Multimodal User Experience group within Imager, as well as the Designing for People (DFP) research cluster. I have focused on human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). Within these areas, I conducted several user studies which involved gathering and analyzing data using qualitative and quantitative methods to synthesize user insights and evaluate solutions. My design research has advanced AI-assisted creativity support, particularly by revealing how AI writing tools should align with writers’ personal values and writing practices.
