Hello there

I just graduated from UC San Diego, where I am studying Design, Computer Science and Mathematics. I am going to continue my journey in design at CCA!

I am known for my highly collaborative and versatile aptitude to work through the entire product cycle. I have always had a strong passion for helping others, and I found a creative outlet for that passion when I pursued design.

To me, design is to provide delightful experience, and I hope to use my skills to enhance everyday interactions to be more seamless. There are so many paths to take when solving a problem, and the possibility of the design process pushes me to discover and create.

During my experience, I found that personalization experience is crucial and should continue to be demanded for the next years. Since people get emotionally attached to their devices and the apps they use on a regular basis, they expect some level of human-like tendencies. This is where the AI technologies kick in. I am excited about the future that AI technologies can bring to better personalization experience. I will be working on the UX design of Xiaoice AI system with the UX team at Microsoft. I am excited about this upcoming internship not only because my work is going to affect over 660 million registered users, but also I can learn about how AI can improve the user experience.
