About Ning

Hi nice to meet you


As a detailed-oriented perfectionist with an empathy for users, I craft user-friendly, aesthetic, and trendy UX products. Recently, I just graduated from Master of Science in Human Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech, and I am looking for a full-time UX designer position starting in summer of 2016.

Born and raised in a mountain city, Chongqing, in Southwest China, I always actively look for new places to hike, new food to try, and of course, new designs to create. Please check out my resume and portfolio for more details.
