~ 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 this fall. 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 helped 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.
