Hi, I'm Crystal.
I am pursuing an MFA in Interaction Design at SVA. In May, I joined IDEO in their New York office as an Interaction Design intern. This past summer, I interned for the Microsoft Mixed Reality Incubation team as a UX Designer, working on designing experiences in AR.
My journey began at Columbia University, where I studied Applied Mathematics. Since then, I worked at Medallia in the SF Bay Area before finally discovering my passion for interaction design. I now merge my analytical and creative sides to make meaningful products and experiences.
I’m currently …
an interaction design intern at IDEO New York.
I’m also finishing up my masters thesis project, using Augmented Reality to teach abstract physics concepts to high school students.
Outside of school, I am working as a NYC Media Lab Design Fellow with a graduate team and AP journalists to explore how to leverage Augmented Reality to engage readers on health and science news.
I also volunteer my design skills for the organization VoteRunLead, which helps to empower and train women to run for political office.
For fun …
I am a big fan of Disney, Broadway shows, karaoke, and puzzles, and am always down for getting good desserts or going on an adventure!
