"The benefits of working with Michael are very clear in our results: Positive user experience and insights that help us prioritize future product features.  Delivering a great user experience is very important to us, but before working with Michael, we were unsure how best to get user feedback.  With Michael's expert guidance, we are now regularly experimenting, testing, measuring, and improving our product."

"You did a fantastic job with the project and the report. I really appreciate the way you dug into the tool to learn it, drove the definition of the test cases, managed all the demands and expectations, and applied best practices."

"Michael Siepmann was one of the best doctoral students I ever advised. He did everything well and was recognized with a prestigious Javits Fellowship, only a few of which are given out. He is especially good with computers and statistics and is one of only two students who have ever got ahead of me in knowledge of essential tools that I use. We co-authored a chapter on how to use JavaScript for questionnaire studies on the World Wide Web—at a time when we were almost the only ones doing this. Michael is also thoughtful, well organized, and dependable."
