Learn how to use rapid research to empower your teammates to gather and share customer insights

About this event

This talk is aimed at providing a framework for growing oneself as a researcher by collaborating with other disciplines, positioning yourself as an expert, and scaling research to impact more of your organization than if you were to do it alone.

Amanda Gelb will share true tales about being the first researcher in the NYC office for Lyft. With tons of examples, clear and engaging visuals of the process, and plenty of “Dos and Don’ts” you will leave this talk with a new approach to your research requests that can be put to immediate use.


UXRS strives to create a community where people can make meaningful connections with others in the UX field. Come for the presentation, stay for the UX networking.

Topic1: What are some tips you’ve learned for moderating research sessions?

Topic2: What have you done to get other people excited about research in your org?

We'll end the night with our usual "happy hour" open forum of questions and answers.

Amanda Gelb leads User Research for Lyft’s NYC office. She loves understanding transportation systems and the motivations and use cases of the people they serve. Amanda is currently focused on Mapping and has worked across Rideshare and Micro-mobility (transit, bikes, and scooters).

She uses her insights to determine ‘what could be’ for product teams. Amanda especially derives joy in researching “future of” scenarios and has done so at Amplify for the EdTech space, at Fuseproject in user-facing connected devices, at Google in dreaming up a new AR/VR app, and at HUGE, a creative agency, where she led a 9-month project on digital fandom around Harry Potter.

Amanda is a lifelong question-asker and tinkerer. She utilizes her experience with experiential education to run dynamic workshops and act as a research-coach, enabling many teams to conduct their own research under her guidance. Amanda lives in Manhattan with her partner Miki and their two children.
