Industrial designer & HCI researcher

Open, persistence, full of curiosity and passion. 

 

I used to focus on refining products to cover overlooked needs, and delivering simple but novel solutions to empower people. 

 

Right now, I focus on user experience design and interactive design holistically, to deliver value and care which can simplify and clear user interactive experience.
