Nga Nguyen has a combined Bachelor of Science degree in Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising with an Art minor in Surface Design from the University of Delaware and an MFA in Interaction Design from the School of Visual Arts.

With the innate awareness that that all things are interconnected Nga sees a divergence of industries co-mingling to resolve complex issues as we evolve and innovate into the 21st century. And that all things are interconnected and that innovation and creation stem from an amalgamation of different ideas across industries to come up with creative solutions to positively impact on people’s lives and to introduce new methodology, systems, products and services in making a difference in this world we live in. Nga is fascinated, inspired and driven to explore these possibilities at the forefront of technology and innovation to join the visionaries of our future. 

Nga currently collaborates with the Design, Strategy and Innovation team at Memorial Sloan Kettering working on building the digital experience in transforming healthcare.
