Nandini (Nanz) Nair


I am a designer and Fulbrighter from Aotearoa New Zealand completing a masters of interaction design at the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University in 2022.

Design has the power to address some of the world's greatest challenges. A smartly designed experience, interaction, or compelling narrative has the power to transform people’s perceptions and behavior, and change systems. I believe in using this power for good. I’m an experienced designer who has worked on a wide range of environmental and social impact projects across start-ups, social enterprises, government, and non-profits.

My passion lies in bringing clarity and meaning to ambiguity and complexity through thoughtful and well-crafted digital experiences. As a hands-on team player, I bring deep curiosity and reflection not only on what we design but also how we design it together. I play an active role in shaping a positive team culture with facilitation and participatory processes.
