About

 

Hello, I am Yejun Wu.

I'm a product designer, photographer and world wanderer from Suzhou, China who currently resides in San Francisco.

In 2017, I graduated from New York University with a Bachelor degree in Art History and Quantitative Economics. Having worked at a number of art scenes, I decided to shift my career from translating the voice of artists to translating the voice of users. My interest in HCI is a natural collision between my analytical skills and my aesthetic sense.

Currently I'm pursuing a Master degree in Information Management and Systems (MIMS) with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction at UC Berkeley School of Information. While I am passionate about how technology can help solve problems for people, I am particularly interested in defining the problem, and translating the understanding about people's thoughts, emotions, behavior into the design of digital interaction. I hope to bridge the gap between human and technology by applying user-centered perspective and ultimately craft experience that truly connects with people. 

As an enthusiastic world wanderer, I have traveled to 23 countries🌍 in the world and learned 4 languages. I also enjoy gallery hopping🎨, food hunting🍕, photography📷 and have a deep love for puppies🐶. If you're looking for designers, have any questions about my project, or just want to say hi. Drop me a line. I'm always open to talk. 📮wuyejun@berkeley.edu.
