When getting it right matters

Our user experience (UX) research, strategy, and consulting services are designed to give you the insights you need to make sound, data-driven product or process design decisions. We can help you increase safety, improve customer satisfaction, satisfy regulatory requirements, reduce failures, lower costs, mitigate liability, and more.

When you have a difficult design challenge, when the stakes are high, when accuracy matters, when you need hard, reliable data instead of conjecture, Exponent UX can help.

A scientific approach to UX

We approach every project with the greatest possible scientific rigor—the highest-quality, most scientifically sound, and unbiased methodologies that will withstand the most challenging scrutiny.

Our Ph.D.-level scientists and researchers have unsurpassed UX expertise, with degrees in human factors, cognitive and perceptual psychology, ergonomics, data science, and other related areas.

Our industry-leading Centers for Scientific User Research (CSUR) arm us with an unparalleled arsenal of advanced UX research technologies and methods that enable us to transcend the limitations of most qualitative and even quantitative research. And we have the industry and litigation experience to know when that matters most.
