Minnar Xie
Hello! I'm Minnar, a senior and 5th Year Scholar at Carnegie Mellon University, wrapping up an interdisciplinary degree in Art and Psychology with an additional major in Human-Computer Interaction. Next year I will be pursuing coursework without degree requirements, focusing on anthropology, design for social services, and courses that think about the ways technology can and cannot further social change.
