Cara Winterbottom

I have been a user experience consultant for over 12 years, working in design, research and strategy for a variety of businesses in different sectors, including Media24, Cipla, Santam, Standard Bank, Google, University of Cape Town, and Triggerfish Animation. During this time, I co-wrote a book titled “UX for the Web”. Before that, I worked in academia, and achieved an Honours degree in Psychology and a PhD in Computer Science, which investigated interaction design and information visualisation.

I have a particular interest in interaction design, information management, and data analysis. In recent years, my interests have shifted towards qualitative research practices and understanding human experience more broadly.
