University of Michigan, MSI
I’m currently studying UX design and research in the MSI program at the University of Michigan, and will be graduating in May 2021. My study focuses on user research methodologies, discovering unmet user needs and designing products to solve their problem for users. I also work on (front-end) development and data analysis projects that are related to user experience.
Product Design:   3+ years
Before I joined MSI, I worked as a product designer for 2 years. Most of my experience is in a startup called Codementor (they’re now rebranded as Arc.dev), where I learned the full lifecycle of product development, collaborating with stakeholders, and solving problems for business while advocating for users. In summer 2020, I did my product design intern at a startup team called Chime. Currently I’m working as an assistant product designer for UM library, working on an online book collection product.
Prior to my product design career, I was a graphic designer, specializing in visual identity, print design, and infographic. My personal work explored visual expressions that could tell compelling stories, and my professional work helped my client to produce a unique identity and tell their story.
