UX Researcher & Designer
"I love to be curious, persistently learn and improve the new challenge for the social benefits and people."
Currently, I'm working as UX/UI designer to create an app and web design for a Fin-tech company in Hong Kong. I focused on providing seamless design solutions and an enjoyable experience for the users with user-centred design processes and agile methodologies.
Also, I'm a part-time lecturer and course developer in the Applied Ageing Studies Programme at the Singapore University of Social Science.
I have obtained a PhD degree from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. During the PhD course, I had user experience research and created intelligent textiles and apps for people with dementia to have sensory-focused and cognitive function training activities. The research outcome was finalised in a few international awards.
