Hi, I'm Crystal. 

I am a multidisciplinary designer pursuing an MFA in Interaction Design at SVA. This past summer, I interned for the Microsoft Mixed Reality Incubation team, working on designing experiences in Augmented and Virtual Reality.

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 love for user experience and product design.


I’m currently …  

finishing up my masters thesis project, using Augmented Reality to teach abstract physics concepts to middle school students in New York City public schools.

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 train women to run for political office.  


For fun …  

I am a big fan of Disney, Broadway shows, and puzzles, and am always down for getting good desserts and going on an adventure! Feel free to play around with the crossword I put together below.
