Michelle Lee is a digital product designer in San Francisco, interested in areas of need.
I'm currently designing at Palantir, working on how data can be more transparent and approachable. Specifically, I'm working on Palantir Gotham, building tools that can help institutions make better-informed decisions through their data. 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 do so through internships at Squarespace, Facebook, Huge, and Palantir. In my senior year, I examined how design can help create more empathy online, while continuing to hone my industry skills through freelance at Format.
