Facebook Groups

In 2022, I joined Meta to contribute to the Facebook Groups project. The experience of designing for 2.9 billion people who use Facebook's apps each month was absolutely amazing. My job on the project was to design tools and features to help communities to flourish and connect even more around their brand and content.

As part of Facebook's Product and Governance team, I conceptualized and designed new solutions to ease the management of new immersive features in today's interconnected world. Daily work included brainstorming and validating ideas with Product Managers and Dev Leads with the goal to help empower community creators to build well-governed communities with a strong culture.

Voice UI

Opensalon® Alexa Skill

Helps users book hair services at thousands of salons, including Supercuts and SmartStyle. An Amazon skill was an excellent opportunity for Regis to try out new business channels. Also, it was a chance for me to improve the skill creation process with a prototype that contains skill instructions rather than a flowchart diagram. Opensalon® Alexa skill brings a joyful experience whether searching for products or just booking a haircut. And since this skill can interact name-free, you can just say: "Alexa, I need a haircut"!

SIC app - Improving production in the largest gold mines in the world

Short Interval Control (SIC) is a process for identifying and acting on opportunities to improve efficiency. Designed and developed in Barrick's software development center CodeMine, this app replaces radio communication for standard and remotely-operated vehicles. This helps tasks to be executed faster with peer-to-peer communication.

My job was to conceptualize and design the UI for the app, and conduct usability testing. The app is serverless, runs on AWS. Color schemes are created for specific mine site conditions and meet WCAG 2.0 AAA (highest) standard for visibility, safety, and maximum production. The app is in use in Barrick's gold mines in Nevada.

Working shoulder to shoulder with mine operators to develop a hi-tech digital tool that makes mining more efficient was an incredible experience.

Style Guide for Barrick Gold

As part of Barrick Corp, I worked on multiple projects in the mining industry. My work includes user interface design, user flows, research, and usability testing. One of my responsibilities was creating a style guide and a design system for Barrick's internal software.

Massive machines in closed and open pits, extreme weather, and reduced visibility added complexity to the project. I tailored the system to improve safety, reduce training, and increase gold production. Style Guide is also available as a clickable prototype.

Predictive Maintenance

Barrick Corp, the largest gold mining company in the US, possesses a massive fleet of various vehicles. Having a predictive maintenance system in place is crucial for avoiding unexpected issues, preventing accidents on the field, and preventing loss in production. My responsibility was to design the Predictive Maintenance platform used by operators in control centers. The system reduced vehicle malfunctions in the goldmine by a large margin, directly increasing gold production.

Our team collected more than 1TB of data per day from sensor-equipped vehicles. Data Scientists further used this data for machine learning algorithms which helped track and monitor vehicles costing millions of dollars each. Details of this work are confidential as they directly show Barrick's assets, personnel, and gold production levels.
