Joshua Silver

UX Researcher

I am a Qualitative UX Researcher on the Product Foundation team. During my time at Facebook, I have used ethnographic methods to explore how Facebook can become a more accessible platform for people around the world.

Before joining Facebook, I received my MA in Medical Anthropology from San Francisco State University. While there, I completed a thesis on how vulnerable populations face structural stigmatization within the healthcare and addiction treatment industries. My interest in the social science of healthcare has also allowed me to contribute to research which expanded accessibility and inclusion for children with autism spectrum disorder.
