Getting into UX Research from Academia and More W/ Stevie Yap | Learners Podcast
Alec sits down with Stevie Yap, Director of Research at Xero. Learn about Stevie’s journey into research from academia and much more.
Alec is a co-founder and the CEO at Learners. He’s worked as a User Researcher at Sciencescape, TWG, and North—before his time as the head of Product at Finaeo and then CEO at UXR Collective. Alec and the other Co-Founders of UXR Collective have long noticed how isolation in the UXR community made growth and connection difficult.
It’s that isolation that ultimately drove Alec and the Learners team to work towards a world with more accessible learning opportunities for everyone.
