B2C Mobility Product

This work consists of foundational research followed by an end-to-end testing phase, completed for a ground-breaking solution designed to integrate with an already-existing car ecosystem. The objective was to create a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication tech product that, when used in conjunction with appropriate infrastructure, traffic rules, and driver education, can help reduce traffic accidents and road congestion.

B2B Legal SaaS

How can a new SaaS product can change human behavior? How can the experience of getting legal advice be improved? These two questions drove my foundational and evaluative research with a legal company launching an e-consultancy module, a never-before-seen way of getting legal advice for the Turkish SMEs.

For about 12 months I spent most of my time leading research in a pretty big team focused on renovating their website and mobile application. We used a lean set of tools to quickly iterate & refine concepts with potential customers to assess their business potential.

My role in these projects was to lead design of the experiment, as well as leading the evaluation of the data returned by the experiment.
