I'm Diana Ye, product design lead at Cedar, based in NYC.

I have 10+ year's experience using design to make meaningful dents in meaningful problems. Read more about our work at Cedar, our research on patient experience during COVID-19, and what we learned about design from an FBI hostage negotiator.

About me

As the child of two scientists, I grew up with petri dishes in the pantry, my nose in a book, and a drawing pencil in hand. Curiosity, creativity, and analytical problem-solving were highly encouraged.

I went to MIT to study brains and become a doctor. Turns out, I was less interested in people's insides than in how they interact with the outside world, so I became a designer instead.

Currently, I am a Product Design Lead at Cedar, where we build tools to make the patient experience more human. I love working with early-stage companies to tackle meaningful missions and complex challenges. View my LinkedIn

When I’m not designing, I like to travel the world with my camera. I think the best foods, voices, and beverages are a little sweet and a lot smoky. Most of all, I love learning new things from people. Come say hello!
