A Bit About Me ...
I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan 🙌 🇹🇼. I went to MIT to study architecture & planning, planed cities with Dyett & Bhatia in the Bay area, and most recently moved to Pittsburgh to pursue a master's degree in Interaction Design at CMU. When I'm not designing, you can find me dancing, running, or making scallion pancakes!
In summer 2018, I will be working as a UX design intern at Microsoft. I will help envision a more empathetic interaction on privacy – a challenging yet critical subject – between Microsoft and its customers.
I am a designer who builds interactions to strengthen the ties between parts and the larger system. I live and breathe in the most complex and ambiguous problem spaces where I seek clarity and identify the right problems to solve. System-level thinking and human-centered research are my bread and butter in design.
About Policy and Social Impact
Public policy is one of the most powerful instruments to raise social equity – an issue I care deeply about as an interaction designer, an urban designer, and an immigrant.
For my graduate thesis, I plan to investigate ways in which design principles/tools can help maintain policy intent in policymaking. Click to see my call-for-participant poster for more information, and please do reach out if you want to chat!
