I am an impact-driven UX designer based in Seattle, WA, aspiring to create joyful experiences and efficient products for users. 

Currently I am a graduate student of Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) at University of Washington. I gained my first master degree in McGill University, Canada, with a research focus on education technology. Recently I work at Shopify as a product design intern in Automation and Integration team, owning the project of designing Scripts Editor for Shopify Plus merchants for better checkout customization. I believe good designers are not constrained to build pixel-perfect interfaces, but can also drive business impact.


Previously, I worked as Administrator and Designer of Program on Creativity + Innovation (PCI) at New York University Shanghai, rebuilding the program structure and designing the website from scratch, and leading the Future Hardware Project in partnership with the world first and biggest hardware accelerator HAX.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to experience different culture, or simply stay at home reading books on literature, psychology and business. I speak 3 languages: Mandarin Chinese, English and French. The subtle feelings and observations from daily life, the stories I have listened, and the cities I have been are all my inspirations for design.

These are part of the companies/organizations I've worked with
