About šŸŒŸ

Hello! I'm Hannah Chow (she/her/hers). I'm a UX designer (and occasional developer) currently based in Seattle, WA and working on Microsoftā€™s Outlook Design team.

I was born & raised in Chicago and hadn't lived anywhere else until I moved to Providence, RI to attend Brown University. Even though I had never looked at code before my freshman year of college (except for using inspect element thanks to Tumblr circa 2012), I ended up majoring in computer science and discovered a love for user interface design & visual computing before graduating in May of 2020.

Previously, I was a software engineering intern at Twitter, where I worked on internal visualization tools. I also worked as a research developer & designer for the Brown University Pen-Touch Computing Lab and subsequently became obsessed with bimodal touch interactions and hypertext.

Iā€™m a big chaider (chai + cider) ā˜•ļø enthusiast, a lover of mid-2000s cartoons šŸ“ŗ, and a proud Twitter bot momma šŸ¤–. Also a huge fan of the Ghibli chicken spirits šŸ„

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, check out my projects on Github, or stalk me on Twitter. You can also email me.

P.S. ā€” This page is designed to last :~)
