I’m Cynthia, a User Researcher, also a current senior at UC Davis studying Cognitive Science! I have a deep love for interdisciplinary design, and it’s evident in the classes I take — a jumble of subjects from psychology to design to computer science to statistics to philosophy to mathematics. I love thinking about ambiguous problems, and understanding experiences I’ve never related to before.

I was a UX Research Intern this past fall at HBO Max and summer at Salesforce. On campus, I led a growing UX community of budding designers and researchers (like me!). Lastly, I’m currently finishing up my last year at Davis; feel free to reach out if you’d like to know what I’m up to or just to chat about life!

Although this may not be the most conventional way to ask for prayer requests, it doesn’t hurt! I want to be able to encourage and care for anyone who comes across this website — whether I know you personally, whether you’re a stranger on the other side of the world, whether I’ve only just met you once — as we all have something to possibly pray for. I’d love to support you through prayer in this way and keep you in my thoughts as I go throughout the week! Here's the form to submit a prayer request.

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12).
