Staff Profiles

Lisa Schaefbauer, M.S.

UX Designer III

Lisa joined the Allen Institute for Cell Science in 2018 to improve the user experience (UX) of online tools and products. In recent years, she worked on projects that ranged from apps for airline crews to streaming entertainment apps and e-commerce sites. Previously, she spent years in software testing at a company that built products to aid in the detection and staging of cancers. 

She studied visual art and design at the University of Washington as an undergraduate. She later earned her M.S. in Human Centered Design & Engineering from the University of Washington, where she focused on accessibility of mobile devices. She brings that same passion for improving the usability of products to this role. 

Lisa is thrilled to join the Institute to continue blending her interests in design and technology to help democratize science.
