Welcome.

PLEASED TO MEET YOU :)

I'm a fourth year student at the University of Pennsylvania exploring Cognitive Science and dabbling in Design. I'm fascinated by the parallels between cognition and digital design, and am eager to create inclusive products that are human-centered.

EXPERIENCE

I'm currently digital designer at the Center for Data Driven Design (D3b) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Aside from regularly updating the center's websites with new content, I also collaborate with senior designers to create graphic assets for newsletters & presentations. More recently, I've conducted UX analyses across several CHOP websites, identifying gaps within the user experience that drive low engagement numbers, and providing design solutions that would enhance the experience.

Previously, I designed & developed chalk.fund, a student-led venture capital fund startup. Chalk invests and partners with deep-tech ventures at the university level, providing funding and business development to founders nationwide.

Before that, I interned as a UX designer at Kidas, a Wharton MBA startup that specializes in bullying & predator protection software for PC video games. There, I designed an email-based weekly status report using responsive HTML/CSS. I also created various advertising campaigns for the company, ranging from still ads to animated videos. Kidas recently raised $2M in their pre-seed stage.
