Hi! I'm Zhi

I am an interaction designer, a slow swimmer, a self-taught chef & a really bad rapper.

I am now working on my thesis for MFA of Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design. My thesis topic is about Music and Machine Learning - it’s super cool!

To me, the highlight moment of my design approach is when I am proved to be wrong, by research, prototypes, testing & etc. I really enjoy the feeling of one step closer to the truth by making mistakes earlier, reflecting upon them and not making the same mistake again.

Welcome to my home and feel free to hang around.
