Currently working in the Center for Health Care Innovation at Penn Medicine. In the past, I've worked at GlaxoSmithKline as a UX design intern. I earned my bachelor's degree at Carnegie Mellon University, where I studied Human-Computer Interaction, Chemistry, and Biomedical Engineering.
To me, design, science, and engineering are fundamentally homogeneous, with the ultimate goal to solve problems. Studying all these disciplines broadens my vision, and trains me to approach problems in diverse ways.
I'm passionate about the health industry because I have a strong sense of mission to help people and make them feel better when they are bothered by illness. And I find it a good fit for my design + science background as well.
If you're interested, you can read more about my story of stepping into the design field as a chemical engineering student and finding a spot that I fit the best.
