Tricia specializes in translating consumer needs and cultural differences into delightful online experiences. Capturing data through various qualitative and quantitative research methods and combining it with advanced behavioral modeling techniques, she creates a holistic visualization of a consumer’s mental model, cognitive process, and behavioral patterns. Her insights and visualizations help companies align their corporate priorities, develop their product strategies, and align their organizational structures with those of their customers. Prior to entering industry, Tricia was a National Research Service Award (NRSA) Neuroscience Postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, examining social regulation of the brain. She has extensively studied and written about the commonalities and differences in learning and memory strategies between humans and other animals, focusing on social learning, concept learning, memory strategies, and symbolic representation. For her work in the area of cognition, she has received awards and competitive grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and Howard Hughes. Tricia has published over 30 journal articles and book chapters. American Scientist and The Economist covered her innovative research demonstrating work ethic in pigeons, which challenged human-centered theories explaining the phenomenon. Her latest page turner, “Steering Clear of Trouble: Fish Can Infer Social Rank by Observation Alone,” garnered the cover of Nature.
