Hello! I am a researcher and designer with a BS degree in Human-Centered Design & Engineering at UW.

As a researcher, I recognize and value people’s subjective experiences and always remind myself to view things from a critical approach that will fully embrace a broad range of perspectives.

As a designer, with considerations toward social issues including unequal power dynamics and biases within the field, I aspire to design for equality, accessibility, and fun while exploring the cross-disciplinary collaboration among people with different expertise.

As a human being, I continue pursuing the meaning of life.
