Interface design, user research, layout

eRegulations Homepage




I worked collaboratively on a multi-functional team to design an online tool to help readers view and more easily navigate the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) regulations. The tool helps readers understand the regulations and research them more efficiently by linking related information and regulatory history to the regulatory text. Visit the full site.

I continued this work at 18F, part of the General Services Administration (GSA), to bring the open source tool to more federal agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). I conducted user research regarding each agency’s specific user needs and prioritized new features based on these needs. Visit the full site or learn about the user research.
