Hi, I’m Ziwen Zeng! You can call me Krystal~
I just graduated from the University of California San Diego with my B.S in Cognitive Science specializing in Human-Computer & Interaction in March 2020, under an especially harsh situation with COVID-19. 
Besides UIUX and interaction design, I also have interests in Data Science (NLP, etc) and Machine Learning. My passion is to combine Data Science and HCI to create products that seamlessly meet user needs.

Currently, I work as a UX Researcher at UCSD The Design Lab with Prof. Steven Dow and Prof Haijun Xia. I’m actively seeking intern/full-time jobs.

Fun Facts About Me

☀️I love baking and arts. I learn them by myself, usually through online resources.

☀️I love music. I play the flute and was in a school orchestra for 6 years.

☀️I love design. I want to make life easier.
