I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University where I am exploring new mediums and ways to facilitate meaningful user experiences.

I am looking for employment opportunities starting in the summer of 2018 and am also available for volunteering and collaborative projects.

Before this, in my role as a Graphic Designer at Tata Elxsi Limited, I worked in the domains of Branding, Communication design, Environmental graphics and FMCG packaging.

I have also worked and collaborated with interdisciplinary teams—research, service design, user experience, and signage—to provide end-to-end solutions to global clients on multi-faceted design projects.

My outlook on design is an amalgamation of my experiences of working in various disciplines. I bring with me a robust design methodology, an empathetic viewpoint, experience in project management, willingness to pursue new ideas and an eagerness to excel.

These days, my conversations revolve around social innovation, sustainable design, inclusivity, artificial intelligence, and learning science amongst other things. I believe design plays an integral role in the way information is presented and how the audience engages with it.

Outside the studio, you would find me indulging in DIY projects, trying to learn Spanish (yet again) and sleeping on my kindle. I like trivia, puzzles, board games, and reading movie plots.
