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.

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!
