why, hello!

Hi, I’m Talia Ayala-Feliciangeli! I’m a UX researcher currently pursuing a Master’s in Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech, and I'll be a Product Design Intern at MongoDB this summer!


As a “people person,” I’ve always been fascinated by meeting new people, hearing their stories, and learning about the experiences that have shaped them. My Psychology undergrad at Pittsburg State University allowed me to explore that passion for understanding humans and their behavior, and that passion turned into curiosity - how could I translate my findings into making everyday experiences more meaningful? This question led me to the field of HCI.


When I’m not working, you can find me embroidering, making way too much sushi for my own good, and obsessing over cacti and succulents!

I'm currently based in Atlanta, Georgia. Want to work together or chat over some coffee? Send me an email at taliayalaf@gatech.edu!
