Need Suggestion

When in design process and as a role of UX designer… What would you suggest a Persona or an Empathy Map. I am working on a academic project but I feel like it might work the same. Please let me know what you think?

It depends on your audience and how you are going to use the information. An empathy map is easier if you just have assumptions. If you have solid first person research and need to show it to someone else, a persona works well.

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I am working on masters project. I am designing a dating app with game elements however I require either a persona or empathy as a base to design. I personally feel persona easy to read and understand… i think I will go with persona…
