User Experience & Design

Hello!

I am a UX Designer and currently working on simplifying payments at Instamojo. . I have also studied HCI at Carnegie Mellon. I love to talk about design, tech and startups and you can reach me on email and twitter.

Apart from the projects listed here, I have dabbled in some fun 3D design stuff and data visualization. I enjoy sketching, dancing , reading books and hobby coding. I love travelling and the outdoors and have been lucky enough to have lived in four different continents in the past three years. Staying in different places has also taught me a lot about adaptability and understanding your environment; something I hope to bring to my designs.

My journey to UX began as a developer. I used to support applications used by medical representatives for Pfizer, France. During my stint, I got several tickets which dealt users reporting bugs which were nothing but poorly designed functionality. I realized I could change this and decided to pursue my masters in HCI. And now I ensure that any product I work on, the feature that is implemented is what users want and works how they would expect.
