As User Experience Designer, Monica will be instrumental in designing the visual appearance and user experience of rich-client, web-based projects coming out of the Lab.
An M.F.A. graduate in Digital Media from the Rhode Island School of Design, Monica first came to Yale as designer for the School of Music (2007-2015) to lead initiatives in web and mobile publishing. Her design for the YSM website was nominated for a Webby Award in 2014 and recognized by the W3 Awards and the Connecticut Art Director’s Club.
As a collaborator in the University’s efforts to expand its digital collections, Monica also created the user interface for the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments’ online catalog, providing a framework for multi-media discovery experiences.
Also a Kundiman poetry fellow, Monica’s debut collection, Silent Anatomies (2015), was selected by Joy Harjo as winner of the 2014 Kore Press First Book Award.
