About me
Hi there! My name is Yuxuan Zhou, and I like to go by Tammy. 🌈
I'm a Product Designer and UX Researcher currently in the MHCI program with Carnegie Mellon University, graduating in August 2022.
My interest lies in emerging technologies that generate social impacts, particularly in healthcare industries and future mobilities.
I'm also passionate about advocating for design thinking across all fields of work, and bridging diverse communities through design.
Why Design
I love how Jared Spool talks about design. He said that “design is the rendering of intent”, and this accurately captures what has drawn me to design. To me, design is not about purely visual aesthetics, but rather it means to observe, to think, to innovate, and to solve real-world problems with good intentions.
As a highly motivated individual who believes in the integration of art and science, I have always been passionate about technology and design. When the combination of the two bring people delightful experience, it brings me great joy.
Besides Work
Cook  |  Travel  |  Read
In my free time, I enjoy preparing adventurous and delicious food for my friends.
Travel for me is all about food, people and art museums. One of my personal goal is to visit all of the top 40 best art museums around the world (only accomplished 8 so far).
I read about 50 books a year on average, with topic covering technology, design, culture, gender issues, social equality and education. You are welcome to check out my journey with books.
Stay in Touch
I'm always up for exciting ideas and opportunities, or we could simply grab a coffee and talk about design ☕
