Hi all!

My name is Janet and I am a senior majoring in Product Design, with a concentration in Computer Science, at Carnegie Mellon University

I am a UX Designer and a Content Developer at CMU CS Academy

Last summer, I interned as a Product Designer at C3.AI

More about me

I'm a product designer from Toronto, Canada, currently studying Pittsburgh. I am interested in designing technical tools for less technical users. I believe design has the power to abstract concepts to make learning new skills more accessible to everyone. I have experience with user research and user testing; I like involving others in my design process. Currently, I'm curious about design systems and front-end development.

Thank you for visiting my website and if you're interested in my work, feel free to contact me by email: jjpeng@andrew.cmu.edu. I'd love to talk and I'm currently looking for full time opportunities fall 2022.
