DENNY L. STARKS
UX RESEARCHER & DESIGNER
I'm a comic book nerd who also enjoys human-centered research and design.
My research centers on studying the different types of violence Black and Latinx trans women and non-binary people of color experience (e.g., structural, physical, psychological, etc.). I also study how they practice safety and self-care. My other
interests include mental health misinformation on
TikTokand queer dating.
P.S. Batman is better than Superman. Just saying...
I believe it's essential to pause and reflect on the work and needs of the users during the design process
I want to help create positive change in the world. I want my research and designs to positively impact the users' lives and give them some fulfillment.
I am continually realizing my biases and trying to unpack them, which will help me moving forward as a researcher. Pausing and reflecting will help me grow as a researcher and designer and create positive impacts on the world.
