Tyreek Houston

UX Researcher & Strategist

I ask questions to help people understand, shape, and solve problems in technology and society. 

​I'm a fitness enthusiast, avid traveler, whole foods advocate, social justice advocate, barber, dog dad and blockchain enthusiast. I studied Library and Information Science at Rutgers University, where I earned my master's degree and still mentor students. My research interests are broad but not limited. I have a particular interest in the intersection of educational technologies and race. In 2020, I published my first research paper in The Journal of Higher Education Theory and Practice (JHETP). Since then, I've taken my blockchain enthusiasm directly to its industry, where I now lead research efforts with Infura at ConsenSys.

Have you ever wondered what the application of blockchain technology could be used for? If so, feel free to take a look at the image below that details a few use cases.

Blockchain Use Cases

Qualitative Research

I started my research career in my first year of graduate school while also working full time. I conducted an IRB-approved independent study, which allowed me to gain a great deal of experience conducting in-depth interviews and exposure to various qualitative research methods.

Product Strategy

In 2016 I had the opportunity to guide the direction of an enterprise learning ecosystem, which allowed me to gain a tremendous amount of experience creating product strategies and prioritizing plans for execution.

Things I Like To Do For Fun Outside of Work:

  • Hiking

  • Trying new food

  • Spending time with family and friends

  • Reading

  • Watching Netflix

  • Going to the gym
