Hello there :)

I am Mia — an MS CS student at Stanford University. I am passionate about developing innovative creative tools for artists and designers.

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

Teaching is a passion of mine. 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 courses at SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia on Generative AI, 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.
