Hi there, this is Qian. I am a CMLH Digital Health fellow and a Ph.D. student in Human-computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. John Zimmerman and Prof. Aaron Steinfeld. I design user experience (UX) for multiple real-world, high-consequence machine learning applications: from data-driven clinical decision support systems to context-aware mobile services, to autonomous cars. Reflecting on this related vein of practice and research, I distill ML technical knowledge and ML thinking into design methodologies, patterns and prototyping toolkits that enable more people to better ideate feasible, meaningful and creative forms and functions of machine learning technologies.
Before CMU, I worked in design consultancy and in the industry (2007-2014). I hold Master of HCI from Carnegie Mellon University, Master of Design, and Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Design from Shanghai Jiaotong University.
