About Me

About Me

Andey_Ng_headshot

Through my education, work, and life experiences, I hope to understand the socioeconomic implications of high-tech firms on its local communities through ethnographic research. What better way to learn about something than live it, right? :)

With the rise of technology embeded into every aspect of our life today, I strive to understand how people interact with technology to inform how we as humans have shifted our needs, values, lifestyles, mindset.

To create an innovative world, I believe there must be an interdisciplinary intersection of ideation, implementation, and ethics. I strive to contribute to the advancement of community building, diversity, equity, and inclusion through social computing, community service, and meaningful relationships to understand the social implications of technology.

Time is zero-sum and priceless to me. So in my free time, I love to roadtrip and travel, play Catan and Mahjong with my friends and family, and build furniture.
