Detailed description:
I have led the effort to introduce usability testing into the gnome development process by:
1) teaching developers how to do it at the GUADECs and the Boston Summit
2) publishing a free guide online for anyone who wants to do usability testing of free software to use it
3) conducting usability testing sessions over IRC with developers from WIPRO, Sun, and the gnome-usability 

I am in charge of Evolution's user interface, and as such have spent 2.5 years making sure that GNOME has an 
easy to use, robust, learnable groupware app to help make it a complete desktop. 

I designed the UIs for the Gnome System Tools. (except for the Print one)

I have frequently served as a consultant for Jody Goldberg when he needed usability input for Gnumeric. 

I maintain the usbaility gnome org mailing list, and try to keep it a spam-free haven for people interested 
in learning about and improving usability wrt GNOME.
