Meg McMahon (they/them)
Northeastern Commons Coordinator
Hi! I’m the Northeastern Commons Coordinator. I help develop the Northeastern Commons, envision the future of the platform with users, and manage day to day operations.
My experience with user research, UI design, visual design, and web development help me evaluate and then improve upon existing designs. I believe in listening to the user in creation of new systems and designs. When working with stakeholders I use systems thinking to build out a plan for Commons use that fits within their information systems. When I look to envision the future of the platform I turn to participatory design and collective creativity over innovation.

My Global Storytelling class’s assignment for the semester was to research, interview, and share the stories of people in Belize about their relationship to their environment. I was part of the interactive team which designed and implemented the website. I was one of two developers that coded the barriers.unc.edu multimedia long form journalism website.
