Simplify the Spreadsheet

Summer 2023

This presentation is an overview of the research I conducted during the summer of 2023. Working with Quentin Romero Lauro and advised by Drs Nik Martelaro, Yasmine Kotturi, and Laura Dabbish at Carnegie Mellon’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute, I analyzed the opportunities and challenges faced by maker entrepreneurs. Using this research, I designed the interface of a computational tool that helps makers become successful business owners by enhancing their financial and creative business insights.
