About Me 
My name is Yuxuan Zhou 周雨璇, and I like to go by Tammy 🌈
I'm a Product Designer, currently in the MHCI program at Carnegie Mellon University, graduating in August 2022.
Professional Interests
My design interests are in emerging technologies that create social impacts, particularly within the healthcare and mobility sectors. 
I intend to employ my product design expertise to advance causes in social innovation and provide creative solutions to intractable problems. 
I'm also passionate about advocating for design thinking across all fields of work and bridging diverse communities through design best practices.
Why Design?
Design can be many things to many people. 
To me, design is not the end result of constructing an artifact, a system, or an implementation plan, but a constant and evolving process of challenging the status quo. It is a sense-making and problem-solving method. 
Jared Spool said that “design is the rendering of intent.” This is what initially piqued my interest and attracted me to design. I have always been passionate about technology and design. When the combination of the two delivers a delightful experience to people, it brings me great joy.
Personal Life
Cooking  |  Traveling  |  Reading
In my free time, I enjoy being adventurous with cooking new ingredients. 
Travel for me is all about food, people, and art museums. One of my personal goals 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 topics covering technology, design, culture, gender issues, social equality, and education. You are welcome to check out my journey with books.

I'm always up for exciting ideas and opportunities, or we can simply grab a (virtual) coffee and talk about anything ☕
