Chun-hua Yang

Senior Multimedia Designer

In my last year of elementary school, my mom signed me up for an art enrichment program admission exam at a junior high school outside our district in Taipei. I was admitted to the program and it was the beginning of my journey in art. I spent most of my weekends in the art studio and was on track for continued art training in senior high school. Eventually, that led me to studying art at the university.

I always knew that I would go abroad to see other part of the world and after I graduated from college, I came to New York and to study computer graphics and multimedia. I then took a position at CSHL’s DNA Learning Center helping with web development and interactive media for its science education outreach mission. I didn't have science background and was not really interested in biology when I was in school. However, I am very fortunate to learn real science from the best educators at this world-renowned scientific institution, so I can create animations to help people understand science. I think that's pretty cool! I also have had the opportunity to meet and video interview many outstanding researchers, including Nobel Laureates, for our educational materials.

The DNALC is a very unique place to work, especially as a "multi" media designer. I started the job creating animations, but my tasks have extended from interactive media to desktop publishing to exhibition design that includes cave paintings. From photography, videography, online video, to live steaming media and webinar support. I also help plan and develop DNALC’s signature lab classrooms around the world and I have traveled with our director to assist with international collaborations. I am sure many other "multi" tasks await to explore, as we always try to be on top of what we do.
