Creative Technologist

Hi, I'm Yifei Gao ( 高亦非 ) and you can call me Jason.

I'm currently a second-year graduate student at NYU ITP where I focus on making playful and fun experience. Before that, I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from USTB.

Since 2017, I have collaborated with Shawn Wang in creating several WeChat mini-applications including the Natianyue. We aimed to solve daily problems from deciding lunch meals to arranging time for group activities.

Being professionally trained as an engineer and self-taught as a designer, I build fun product & experience that brings happiness to daily life.
