After earning my Bachelor of Computer Engineering in 2011, I worked at Oracle for a few years as a Software Consultant where I understood how software products are designed and developed to be in sync with the business goals of an organization. At this point I realized that poorly designed user interfaces can lead to many user experience problems. Hence, I was motivated to further pursue a Masters in Human Computer Interaction , so that I would learn the formal techniques of Human Centered Design research and development.


Some of my most rewarding work experiences have happened because I was confronted by a story or an idea that stimulated my heart and mind. Because of this, I’m deeply motivated to build systems where stories and ideas have the power to inclusively converse, thoughtfully collide, intelligently build, and positively impact people.







Apart from this I believe that women are vital to building technology that the world needs. Hence, I have volunteered as a planning committee member at the Grace Hopper Celebration India, for Women in Technology and Computing since 2012. In my free time, I volunteer for social causes, try new recipes out in the kitchen or explore new places.
