Hi, I’m Li, a designer with a passion for visual communication.

Previously, I was the UX Design Lead at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, where I brought in user-centered design to the team and designed educational apps for millions of educators and students. Before I discovered my passion for UX design, I worked as a medical illustrator and did research in DNA transcription. I enjoy transforming ideas into powerful solutions.
