Year at UW: First

Hometown: Bainbridge Island, WA

About me: My name is Lia Johansen. I am currently a freshman studying Human Centered Design and Engineering. I am interested in the intersection of design, technology, and computer science. I plan on concentrating in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and computer science to make my degree fit what I love. As a STEM major, I love the Interdisciplinary Honors program. It allows me to take thought provoking classes outside of my major that will contribute to a well rounded education. I am a Project Leader in Design for America and am currently learning and practicing the design process. If you have any questions about engineering, design, the honors program, or anything else I would love to answer them!
