Hello, I'm Shiying!

I am a full-stack developer, who is passionate about taking innovative ideas from concept to design, development and launch.

Currently, I’m a first-year graduate student in Connective Media at Cornell Tech, where I study Computer Science and Information Systems with a special focus on Human-Computer Interaction.

In the past, I have designed and built responsive data visualization and news applications at The Wall Street Journal, NBC and The Texas Tribune — a digital-first nonprofit, nonpartisan digital media organization covering Texas politics and policy.

Some of my projects have received professional recognitions:

  • Shortlisted, Best Visualization, The Sigma Awards for data journalism, 2020
  • Award of Excellence, Business Information Graphics, Society for News Design, 2019
  • I want to leverage my experience in public service journalism to make media tech products more accessible and ethical. I care deeply about the community impacts of technology and hope to contribute my skills in creating a better digital community.

    • Asian Americans' Troubling Stance on Peter Liang's Case

      Nov 7, 2016, Asia Times Online
      For the first time in recent American history, Asian-Americans broke the silence, but not in the way I had hoped. According to Claire Jean Kim from The New York Times, many protesters argued that Liang’s conviction was proof of “selective prosecution” and “racial scape-goating;” if Liang were not Chinese or a person of color, he wouldn’t have been convicted. But how can we advocate for Asian-American justice while stepping on the dead body of an African-American?
