Aragon is pleased to welcome Andrea Gallagher to the role of User Research Lead, where she will be enabling the Aragon product and research teams to be more customer-centric.
Andrea has an academic background in cognitive psychology and experience in information architecture, interaction design, and user research. She brings lessons from Web1 (startups, early dot-com consulting), Web2 (Intuit, Google, Asana), Web3 and DAOs. She has focused her design research work on small businesses, finance, and team collaboration.
Andrea has recently moved to West Virginia, US, with her husband Scott. She loves hiking in the local Appalachian mountains, cooking for big groups, and reading science fiction.
"For the last 3 years, I have been paying attention to the problem of group decision-making, from small teams to large communities. When exploring team collaboration, "making good decisions fast" comes up often as an important problem and an unmet need. I fell in love with the subject and have spent the last year reading and talking to various people who are working on this problem. I really needed a team to partner with that is just as passionate about solving these issues as I am and I have found that with Aragon.
For me, DAOs are the distilled essence of a team - a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. They will succeed by mastering the best tools and processes to make great decisions.
In Aragon, I am joining a team where I can blend tactical work making important products better with big-picture theory about the best ways that large groups can collaborate. I'm excited to see DAOs moving up the learning curve and am looking forward to providing the most powerful tools possible to facilitate that success." - Andrea Gallagher, User Research Lead at the Aragon Association.
