Bohan Chen is a UX designer currently pursuing MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design.
He studied Interaction Design at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He was driven to design because he enjoyed learning about people's goals and helping them solve problems. I believe good design solves problems in the real world
In summer 2019, He got the opportunity to join the IBM Watson IoT team , giving him the incredible opportunity to learn from and work with an incredible team of designers, engineers, and managers.
