About Me

I'm a passionate, strategic, and innovative UX Designer based in San Francisco, CA. I strongly believe that design is the line that connects business, technology, and humans.


In the past few years, I have been working at Cisco Systems within the Collaboration Technology Group and focusing on Conversational AI/Machine Learning related products. Currently, I'm the UX Lead for Cisco Webex Assistant, which is a multi-modal Conversational AI, including voice UI, touch UI, gesture interaction, chatbot and more. I also collaborate with globally distributed product teams within the Collaboration Technology Group and help to empower their products with Webex Assistant. 

I hold the MFA Integrated Design degree from the College for Creative Studies based in Detroit, MI. I focused on Experience and Service Design and graduated with the Award of Excellence in Graduate Studies. For undergrad, I studied Industrial Design at Jilin University, China.


In my spare time, I like to travel. Recently, I've been studying Spanish because I love learning about different cultures and people. You can also find me at https://medium.com/@1000qian, where I share

my experience and views.


Oh! I'm also a coffee addict. ☕️
