Resume and “User Guide”

Mia Lin’s Resume 2018

“User Guide” to Mia Lin – get to know me a bit better!

Bio

interaction design astronaut, documentarian, book hoarder, stargazer

I’m inspired by: opportunities to innovate, critical projects with massive scope, data (and analysis), collaborative design, usability testing, identifying and reducing friction for the user, problem identification, and calculated risk.

I want to explore more: expanding interaction design to emerging technologies; connected spaces (IoT); haptic and auditory feedback; advanced robotics, intelligent materials, additive manufacturing, and psychosocial impacts of disruptive technologies on individual and group interactions with developing technologies.

I’m currently based in Dallas, TX, moving to Portland December 2018, and I stand firm in my belief that Pluto is a planet (but is not related to my relocation).
