I am currently working as an AR Product Designer at Snap and the co-founder of EyeDream Interactive (a Media Art and Tech studio). Previously, I was the Product Design Lead at D2 Nova. I hold a MS degree from the UC Santa Barbara in Media Arts and Technology and a BA degree from Shanghai Tongji University in Advertising.
I have a deep passion for pushing the boundaries of human-computer interaction, exploring the uncharted territories of both virtual and physical interfaces. Through my AR/VR designs and art practices, my ultimate goal is to not only enhance the connections between individuals but also to amplify empathy towards other species and our environment.
