Hi, there! Thanks for stopping by. I am a first-generation American, born and raised in India.
As a user experience designer with an analytical bent, I like to apply research to simplify people-object interactions and craft meaningful, innovative experiences.
As an educator, I have had the opportunity to design engaging workshops and curricula for my former design students in India. I draw upon my training in design history and material cultural research to organize information, make sense of design patterns, analyze visual cues and sentiments. As an academic researcher, I gained expertise in fact checking, literature reviews and triangulated synthesis & analysis of data gathered from multiple sources. As a design historian, I mastered the art of telling user stories from close examination of objects.
Thanks to my undergraduate education in textile design, I am well-versed with the iterative process of design thinking. I have the utmost respect for anything handmade.
I am a big-picture person. While designing products or services I tend to think a few steps ahead, consider a multitude of possibilities. Focusing on the larger purpose of the project helps me work backwards and be intentional about each step towards achieving the final outcome.
