I am currently a first-year Master’s student in the Human-Computer Interaction program at Georgia Institute of Technology, and am looking for opportunities for Summer 2017.

Before coming to Georgia Tech, I have worked as a UI/UX Designer in India for 4 years with multiple startups and design studios, both in consulting and full-time roles. Since I have been the only designer in most of my projects, I have been responsible for all parts of the design process including research, design, testing, and sometimes front-end development. After having dabbled with all of them, I have found that my strength lies in Information Architecture and Interaction Design, and that’s the unique value I bring to teams. In the future, I am looking for opportunities that allow me to refine and advance my Interaction Design skills by working on complex problems in medium and large information systems.

As a designer, I am comfortable at various levels of zoom. User needs serve as the North Star in my process, and I strive to perfect projects to the last detail. I am excited by interdisciplinary teams, involvement throughout the project, thought through execution, positive real-world impact, and learning something completely new.

Outside of work, I have traveled and solo-backpacked in 11 countries and have been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2015.
