Fatos Berisha's Profile

Fatos Berisha

I now work as a Customer Lead at iRise, a medium-sized enterprise behind an innovative platform that helps organisations build better applications and software.

My role is to design and direct demonstration/proof-of-concept activities with prospective customers and manage strategic customer accounts, across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

My career in this industry started just before I got my Ph.D. in early 2009, beginning at Capgemini as a Junior Business Analyst and continuing at CGI (formerly Logica) as a UX/UI Lead.

The degree earned at the Psychology Department at UCL proved to be a key differentiator and most probably essential to my career progression – specifically, by providing me with expert knowledge of aspects of human visual perception that gave me an important edge in my early UX/UI, human- computer interaction, and systems design roles, and more generally through the exposure to and collaboration with so many talented people and cutting-edge research teams that imprinted on me their exceptional work ethic, high standards, and a singular drive in the pursuit of excellence.
