Oh hi there!

I’m Melissa Kuo, a UX Designer based in the Bay Area.

I've been working at Google since 2014, where I’ve spent most of my time working on improving Google Search on mobile and desktop.

I love what I do, and believe that everyone can benefit from the user-centered problem solving process of UX Design.

In my 20% time, I teach UX Design to students, and lead initiatives to promote UX as a career.
