Asta works as a Senior Research Designer providing User Experience solutions around emerging technologies pertaining to HCI, Collaborative Computing, and Data Visualization. She first joined MSR in 1997 working for the Virtual Worlds Group. In 2000, she joined the Next Media Group under Curtis Wong where she worked on a variety of projects ranging from interactive television and photo experiences to collaborating with WGBH in Boston to create a rich online experience for the award winning documentary "Commanding Heights". A few years later, she left Research to work with MSN on synchronous communication applications for teens which eventually migrated into Windows where she became the User Experience lead for Windows Live Messenger. She then went on to join Live Labs in 2008 to work on contextual search experiences for consumers. She has recently rejoined her peers in Research and continues to pursue her passion around emerging technologies and more recently, wearables.
She is a Parsons School of Design alumni.
