Shin Young Lucia

Hi there, 👋

My name is Shin Young, also goes by Lucia.

I'm a designer specializing in making human-friendly technology. 👽 Ever since my first design project on augmented reality (AR) windshield to prevent distracted driving, I've gravitated toward applying HCI and design for social, economic, and environmental goods.

I'm currently at GE Healthcare, establishing user experience and interface standards and guidelines for a suite of global products. Previously, I've worked on a range of domains — including education, non-profit, transportation policy, and more.

In free time, I enjoy learning about the world, curating music, and exploring places (mainly for food and outdoor activities).
