About Amy Lo

Hi, I'm Amy!

I'm at Stanford University studying Psychology and Computer Science, set to graduate in June 2024. I specialize in neuroscience and human-computer interaction.

Professionally, I'm a UX designer and engineer with experience in designing for startups and government experience. Last summer, I interned at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, designing and developing their internal design system.

Currently, I am a TA for CS106A (Python) and CS106B (C++), where I teach a weekly section of 10-15 students introductory computer science. I'm also a Resident Assistant for a 60-person dorm at Stanford, and research in the Stanford Culture and Emotion Lab and the Stanford Memory Lab, where I am working on a VR project studying memory.

In my free time, I love picnics, hosting themed parties, and making bad jokes.
