More About Me

I am a graduate student with Masters in Information, specialized in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

When I was an undergraduate, I was keen on exploring people’s motivations and emotions, and how the environment affects them. To learn more about different kinds of people and the types of services currently available to them, I undertook a series of volunteer placements and research projects, such as volunteering at Nanjing Psychological Crisis Prevention Center and doing research for depressed undergraduates. I learned how self-reliant and self-empowering tools, such as mindfulness, can help people find a way of reclaiming inner psychological balance. These experiences led me to question how I could understand people better and how I could help them to live more fulfilling lives.

As a designer, I am happy to build innovative features and deliver high quality user experiences. I have extensive experience designing in the digital medium and work with projects involving interaction, wearable, Artificial Intelligence, and e-commerce. I'm very self-motivated and always learning. I am an optimist who’s always trying to figure a way out.
