Raised and educated in Hunan province, China, Shanglei began her career as an Architectural Designer in Singapore in 2010. Five years later, Shanglei moved to Indianapolis to pursue a master’s degree.
After graduating from IUPUI with a Master degree in Human-Computer Interaction in 2017, Shanglei joined Team Awesome as our UI/UX Designer.
Her background as an Architectural Designer gives Shanglei a unique skill set to bring to her role; she is able to take a project from ambiguity to clarity by setting a direction that combines client, business, and development goals.
After checking her morning emails and writing her daily to-do list, Shanglei attends project management meetings before putting on her headphones and focusing on the design part of her day.
Shanglei enjoys the flexible work environment at Inverse-Square and appreciates the work-life balance it provides. In her spare time, Shanglei is a traveler, a nature enthusiast, and a coffee addict. She has already traveled to a dozen countries, and looks forward to exploring more, meeting diverse people, and savoring the moments with a good cup of coffee.
