About Melinda Klayman
Melinda is a UX Researcher at Google Search. Her focus is Next Billion Users, which means people coming online for the first time. That includes all sorts of people for various reasons: like people in India where technology and infrastructure improvements have made online access more available and affordable, teenagers who are just now old enough to get a smartphone, older generations who tend to be late adopters, or women in conservative cultures whose society has become more accepting.
Melinda loves meeting people with different perspectives, and explaining their points of view to the teams who build technology for them. The guiding principle to Melinda's work is to help people, not exploit them. In her spare time, Melinda practices ukulele and has a bit of an obsession with hair.
