Hi! I'm Chien-Chun Wu and Chien for short. I'm currently pursuing my master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction Design at Indiana University Bloomington with my passion in supporting people's productivity and creativity.
I believe that technology is a means to assist and empower humans to achieve their goals, and the design work I envision doing helps address the complexity of issues, deliver great end-to-end experience, and align with key business goals.
Everyone from an Economics background steps into another field with their good foundation, and I am no exception. With a degree in Economics, I spend a lot of time understanding human decisions and behaviors, portraying possible systems and strategies, and studying the tech market. The issues I've focused on led my next step in designing around productivity and with people.
With 3+ years of experience in UX design and research, I've worked on a range of problem areas—including online publishing, tool-learning, culture-sharing, personal health, smart home, mobility, productivity, and design system. Recently, I'm thinking how computer vision could help with the dietary assessment.
On a more personal note, I enjoy exploring new things and practicing minimalism (grey t-shirts in summer and more). Our productivity, self-management, local businesses, as well as SaaS and emerging technologies are always on my radar. While not designing, you can find me reading mangas, trying beers (especially sour beers 🍻), or riding my road bike.
Lastly, I want to share one thing I recently appreciate a lot.
It's a tweet from Tanner Christensen.
I used to dread it when a manager would ask me: "What's your career goal?" It took me too long time to realize "Figuring out what my goal should be" is a reasonable answer.
Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoy it.
