My name is Yixin Duan (段亦欣). Nice to see you here! I've joined the Microsoft ODSP team since November 2020 as a product designer. I got my Master’s Degree in Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to that, I graduated with a B.Eng degree in Industrial Design at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I once worked as a product design intern at Samsung and BMW, from which I explored design opportunities with regards to healthcare and autonomous driving.
My interest mainly lies in digital experience design and IoT product design. I've devoted myself to developing empathy with stakeholders and crafting meaningful experiences in terms of both function and emotion.
When I am not playing with Figma, I can be found playing Candy Crush, seeking delicious food, and trying to become a mediocre Texas Hold’em player.
