Methods and analysis used in user research

Hello Ixda,

I’d like some advice for user research.

Would anyone especially those with a PhD in HCI like to discuss overlap of user research and design. At what point in the process does the user researcher not cross into the territory of the interaction designer?

I’m also aware of market research techniques (possibly as a result of brand) used instead of user research would anyone like to educate on overlaps between market research, user research, and business analysis?
