I'm Julia, a sophomore product design major pursuing a linguistics minor at Carnegie Mellon University. I am excited by opportunities to research and explore problems, iterate concepts through sketching and modeling, and design final solutions using both product and communication design. I also have a love for languages. I am fluent in three (English, Russian, and French) and currently learning Italian in anticipation of studying abroad in Florence next semester. I am interested in combining my passions for languages and travel with design.
