Mike Dong

User Experience Designer

Mike joined Whipsaw as a User Experience Designer in 2021. He sees design not only as a problem-solving tool, but as something that can be used to catalyze thinking, discussion and empower people to become active co-designers.

Prior to joining Whipsaw, Mike worked at Penn Medicine where he designed tools for clinical providers to deliver better care to patients. He earned a master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction & Design from the University of Washington and a BS in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University.

Mike is a foodie who spends his free time cooking and trying out new restaurants. Cooking is his way of experiencing different cultures as well as reconnecting with his Shanghai roots.
