Scientific software is very often written by domain experts for domain experts. Usually, there is no process that ensures a good usability. I started the User Experience for Life Sciences (UXLS) project because I was working on scientific software and saw a lack of information available on usability specifically for scientific software.

More than 50 UX experts from many large life science and pharmaceutical companies created a toolkit that helps life sciences and pharmaceutical companies to implement User Experience practices in their processes and products.

Next to proposing the project, I lead the team who was tasked with implementing the website.
