Tonya Nguyen
Heyo, it's Tonya! This website is currently underdevelopment – stay tuned!

I'm an interaction designer and HCI researcher @ UC Berkeley, studying human-computer interaction and critical theory. I'm interested in research through design, social computing, vocal user interfaces, privacy, and design ethics!

Currently, I'm an undergraduate research assistant with Professor Bjoern Hartmann at the Berkeley Institute of Design.

This semester, I am
  • leading an interdisciplinary team to collect data and to conduct user research for campus wide initiatives at the ASUC
  • redesigning and developing Beehive as the head of design
  • creating a resource index and website for the new Basic Needs Security Center at UC Berkeley
  • teaching Beyond Design Thinking at the Berkeley Center for New Media
  • doing what makes me happy – human-computer interaction research!
