~ exploring the diversity of human experiences and how people interact with the world around them ~
I’m currently a research affiliate at the Participatory Design Lab at Tatung University in Taipei, and will be joining the Design & Social Justice Studio at Georgia Tech’s Digital Media program fall of 2021. My academic research focuses on exploring the intersection of digital and built environments to design for health and accessibility. I am also a trained landscape and urban designer with a passion for public spaces, and have designed spaces like medicinal gardens, memorials, urban streetscapes.
In my spare time, I make screen prints to explore experiences and stories of places in Taipei, where I grew up, and to document and honor the memories I shared with my mom, who passed away last year.
