Hello and Welcome!

Grace Phang

I am passionate about building better experiences and advocating for user needs. As a researcher, I uncover user patterns that allow teams to make data-informed decisions on high-impact products.

My stretch goal for 2020 is to give UX talks and write UX articles.

Currently spending my pandemic baking bread, sewing masks, working on hats for Katy Perry, attending talks & panels with diverse speakers, and listening to audiobooks.
