My name is Nadya Audrey, a UX Designer with a Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction background. Currently, I am a UI/UX Designer at Applied Medical. I lead a couple of internal-facing projects and also maintain the design system. To me, designing is more than just making things pretty. Designing is about finding a problem and finding an elegant creative solution to solve it. I am also a firm believer that designers should have at least basic coding knowledge at hand. This skill will come in handy to design feasible solutions and effectively communicate with the developer team. A little about my educational background, I graduated from the University of California, San Diego, with a degree in Human-Computer Interaction. I've been interested in design since I was young, but I decided to study computer science during my first two years in college. I learned about the Human-Computer Interaction major shortly after, and I was so happy to find out that I could use my coding skills and learn about design. Long story short, here I am, living my dream. In my free time, you can find me baking, watercoloring, or most often, watching movies or TV shows.
