khanh nguyen is an interdisciplinary designer & researcher seeking empathetic ways to understand, provoke, and solve the world’s most pressing issues. With a background in mechanical engineering and human-centred design from MIT and two years of experience working in strategy, she wears many hats.
A first-generation vietnamese-american immigrant, she finds this identity core to her, as it allows her to bring in hybrid perspectives and switch between vastly different cultures. She is both suspicious of and beholden to the institutions that have shaped her, aware that she has insight to both underrepresented voices and privileged spaces. Having lived and worked in the Bay Area, New York City, Milan, Kuala Lumpur, Boston, and London, her background and experiences bring a deeper degree of empathy to all that she creates.
She considers herself a creative technologist, marketing mixologist, yes-and activist, and kaleidoscopic strategist. Remember her in cmyk, and get the full spectrum of colour.
