Austin is a 3rd year postgraduate student from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Industrial Design program, and Human Dynamics and Controls Lab.
His former athletic background serves as source of inspiration for his design, as his area of focus in industrial design is currently related to body movement and ergonomics. With professional working experience in both Asia and the US, he is keen on growing human-centered design out of humanism to make this world a better place.
