Committees

The EPIC community is driven by the vision, expertise, and hard work of our members. Independent committees develop conference programming and run the show.

Carrie (she/her) is a design leader and artist. A member of EPIC since 2011, she has co-chaired several committees, including PechaKucha, salons, and workshops. Carrie is currently a Managing Director at JPMorgan Chase, where she leads UX Research teams on Chase’s digital products and channels. She was born in Southern California and has lived in LA County since 2004.

Carrie Yury, conference chair

Managing Director, Head of UX Research, Digital Products & Channels, JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Lee (they/them) is a UX Researcher who has been part of the EPIC family since 2017. They specialize in complex technologies and AI/ML-driven products and work systems, having worked on AR/VR for Meta, autonomous vehicles for Waymo and Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, and navigation systems for Lyft. Lee’s favorite personal contribution to EPIC is the EPIC Talk on Space and Place in the Digital Age they gave in 2021, though they have been privileged to wear many different hats in EPIC committees and conferences over the years. They recently posted a longform piece that reflects on the disconnect between what GenAI products enable a user to request (facts) and what they output (the ‘fact-ish’); how users put fact-ish information to work; and implications for the integrity of the digital public sphere. Lee holds a PhD in Geography, Environment and Society from the University of Minnesota.
