Tina Ye is a product designer and researcher who has worked on a variety of cross-disciplinary teams at organizations both large (New York Times) and small (pre-Series A tech startups). Throughout her career she has worked to promote collaborative, research-driven design practices, especially in companies that are adopting design processes for the first time.
