Following graduation from the UK's University of Warwick with a BSc (Hons) degree, Yan worked as a social sciences researcher in Hong Kong, specializing in school projects. She subsequently pursued postgraduate studies in education and went into teaching. It was while completing her Master's thesis on psycholinguistics and human-computer interaction that Yan first became interested in the field of user experience design. As part of UBC CPD's creative learning team, she helps develop interactive course content for various online modules. In her off hours, you can find Yan enjoying a bike ride along one of Vancouver's numerous trails or a book by the seawall.
