I am a product designer and a computer science engineer!
At a point in my professional journey, my curiosity about "why to build stuff" became equally important to my passion of "how to build stuff"!
After graduating from BITS Pilani (India) in Computer Science and Economics, I worked as a front-end developer for 3 years at Flipkart and eBay. It was while I was building scalable experiences for 100M+ users, I started deep-diving the flows, UX decisions and design patterns with my team and decided to get closer to the problems and its users by making a shift into the world of design.
I am a Master's student pursuing Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan, School of Information (graduating Dec 2020). I am passionate about building meaningful and scalable experiences using emerging technologies capable of changing the status quo.
When I am not dreaming, I am found dancing,practicing yoga, and designing hand letters.
I am a ginger chai ☕️ person! If you would like to know more about my work, feel free to connect with me!
I have always loved teaching and helping people in their journeys.
