👋 Hey! I'm a bio/health tech and quantum computing enthusiast + a design junkie. I was born in China and moved to Toronto, Canada when I was 5. Currently on a search for ikigai.


🧬 I'm interested in interfacing tech and design in bio-related disciplines to create sustainable impact through science. Fascinated by how we can engineer biology.

When I'm not overheating my laptop running Jupyter notebooks or moving around shapes in Figma, I like to learn about the history of different cultural foods and read memoirs.

I also occasionally write on Medium.
