About Yixin.

Processed with VSCO with c2 preset

My name is Yixin Duan (段亦欣). Nice to see you here! 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. Last summer, as a product design intern at Samsung Research America, I explored the interaction between mobile users and smartwatches and launched service design projects for 5,000+ customers.

My research interest mainly lies in digital experience design and IoT product design. I've been devoted myself to developing empathy with stakeholders and crafting meaningful experience in terms of both function and emotion.

For fun, I spend much of my leisure time learning animation, cooking, and listening to K-pop music. Please feel free to reach out to me!
