Anqi Xu, pictured above, is one of 240 students who deposited their work to the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) as part of completing their programs of study at Stanford in 2020. Xu received her MA in East Asian Studies. Her thesis, available at PURL and SearchWorks, is a case study using a combination of business and design thinking analysis methods to explore the intersection of engineering, art making, and art viewing. She is one of five Stanford students selected for a fellowship to pursue a master’s degree in global affairs at Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
