About: I am currently pursuing my master’s in Human-Computer Interaction. In the past, I was a UI developer. During my course of work, I worked on various technologies to build health care and financial user interfaces. In the long run, I developed a deep interest in client-facing roles and socio-psychological aspects of the products that I encountered.
I chose to pursue a master’s in HCI to develop skills that are on par with professionals. My future aspirations as a UX/product designer is to design smarter solutions that bring novel changes to society. Apart from academics, I love traveling and doing adventure activities. I fight for causes, including health care, awareness, education, and often engage myself by volunteering in a community that supports these causes.
Advice for new students: Engineering your passion needs time and effort. Hunt for the right tools, resources, and mentors. Finally, never give up.
