Yijia Wang, Class of 2019

Published on: August 3rd, 2017

One part analyst, one part designer, one part always curious to learn how society works. Graduated from quantitative economics & studio arts background, I am currently a Brand & Media Analyst at a marketing firm. Besides telling stories from data with my day job, I’m also a part-time (self-taught) designer, telling stories from graphics. While the analytical part of me has trained for years of rigorous mathematics studies, I think it is time for my self-taught designer side to get professional prepared, not only for becoming a design practitioner/scholar, but to dive deeper into the inner-workings of designing for systematic changes, and exploring the possibilities to bring arts and science together.

I was born and raised in Hangzhou, China, graduated from Tufts University and moved to New York City ever since.
