Hello there :)

I am Mia — an MS CS student at Stanford University, and a Research Engineer Intern at Adobe. I am passionate about developing innovative creative tools for artists and designers, using graphics, HCI, and machine learning.

During my time at Carnegie Mellon University, where I received my BCSA — Bachelors of Computer Science and Arts, I had the privilege of conducting research on (1) generative systems under the guidance of Professor Jun-Yan Zhu, and (2) computational design under the guidance of Professor Kyuha Shim.

Teaching is a passion of mine. At CMU, I helped students learn about computer graphics and functional programming. I believe in the power of visual storytelling as a vessel for knowledge sharing. In my free time, I experiment as a comic artist, curating accessible educational illustrations on technical topics. I have had the honor to co-teach a course on Generative Machine Learning at SIGGRAPH 2023, incorporating visual narratives in the teaching material.

If you'd like to chat about design, generative systems, or education, feel free to reach me at miatang13 [at] gmail.
