Michelle Lee is a digital product designer in San Francisco, interested in areas of need.
I’m currently designing software at Palantir, working on how our experiences with data can be more transparent and approachable to make better-informed decisions. Specifically, I’ve been working on Palantir Gotham to help institutions structure their data in order to maximize their capabilities. Efforts I've contributed to include 🔨 improving manufacturing processes, ⛑️ providing aid to Syrian refugees, 💊 developing and delivering effective medicine, and 🔍 uncovering illicit networks around the world.
Prior to Palantir, I studied graphic design at York/Sheridan Program in Design. I took a gap year to develop my knowledge in product design, and was fortunate to learn from internships at Squarespace, Facebook, Huge, and Palantir. In my senior year, I examined how design can help people become more empathetic in online spaces, while continuing to hone my industry skills through freelance work at Format.
