I'm a product designer who enjoys helping users make smarter decisions quicker. I'm specifically passionate about designing features that protect users' privacy, and facilitate collaboration and coordination.
I was born in Hawaii, and raised in Pittsburgh, Hong Kong and Seoul. In 2014, I flew out to Evanston, IL to study Cognitive Science at Northwestern University. After graduating in 2018, I headed straight to Pittsburgh to pursue my Masters in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. After which I interned at Palantir Technologies, and am now a product designer at Facebook.
In my spare time I enjoy reading psych journals on bilingualism, self-perception and reward mechanisms. (Thanks NU for never disabling student accounts and giving me eternal access to academic journal archives.)
And I'm also your average third culture kid binge-watching food and crime documentaries at 2 am, reading Modern Love on NYT, shopping for pants that won't drag on the floor (5'3" woes), and drinking way too much coffee and eating way too much sugar for her own good #newdecadesameme.
