Having lived and grown up in Silicon Valley, I was exposed to a predominantly STEM education. However, after being introduced to design thinking along with design's problem-solving, world-changing possibilities, my main interests turned.
I am currently pursuing product design with a concentration in HCI. I find joy in working through the intricate design process - from initial identification of problems and research to the creation of a final sellable, usable product. I also find inspiration from the collaborative aspects of design, having to work with engineers, cognitive scientists, marketing experts, etc.
