about me

Hi, I am Ehsan Naderi, a UXer at Google!

Before joining Google, I worked in the medical device industry as UX and Industrial Designer and at the University of Minnesota as product design professor, graduate program director, and human factors and ergonomic faculty. I earned my PhD and a master’s degree in Design with Digital Media, in addition to BS and MS in Industrial Product Design.

My research areas are human-computer interaction, user perception and behavior, and XR. My research uses mixed methods, state-of-the-art technologies, and measurement tools to identify user needs, attitudes, and behavior. Along with my peer-reviewed research, international design venues (including, A Life with Future Computing: Fujitsu Design Award, BREIL Milano Timepiece Design Award, and Vision of the Future) have recognized and featured my product design works in the US and Europe.

XR and HCI

To understand user experiences with constantly evolving emerging technologies, I employ state-of-the-art tools and a mixed research methodology. My research on XR envelops the experiences of immersive technologies, including Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality.

User Experience

Regardless of the medium and context, I see user experiences of products and services beyond just the screen-based interactions on mobile devices. Creating a meaningful experience requires a participatory design research approach from the beginning.

Product Design

With keeping the interests of the user, client, and environment in mind, I was able to design award-winning products, including but not limited to consumer electronics, personal items and accessories, appliances, furniture, and interiors.

User Research

Ehsan’s research is focused on human-computer interaction and user experiences, particularly those interactions with immersive technologies.


Experience Design

His background and training have enabled Ehsan to design and develop meaningful experiences and products using cutting-edge technologies.



Ehsan has taught and advised graduate and undergraduate students in user-centered product design, industrial design, as well as architecture.
