I’m a designer based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, currently at work on my master’s thesis in the Master in Architecture I program at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. My academic pursuits have ranged from biotechnology to fashion to urban design, and these studies have carried me from my hometown of Guangzhou, China, to California and Italy and ultimately to New England. I specialize in computational design, which I deploy toward solving complex architectural, urban, and social problems. I believe deeply in the power of architecture and design to shape a better and more just built environment.
I’m also the co-founder of Design Yard Sale, a racial justice fundraiser that brought together designers across the globe in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Together we auctioned and sold over 600 donated items and raised over $125,000—all in the month of July 2020. Looking forward, I hope to continue putting my design skills to work addressing the critical issues facing our society today.
