about me

I am a PhD student at IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay, India.
The research work is being supervised by Dr. Jayesh S. Pillai.

I am skilled in User Experience Design, Augmented/Virtual Reality, HCI and Educational Technology. My research interest lies in establishing Augmented Reality technology in school education. For this, I am investigating the design strategies for Augmented Reality based learning experience in K-12 classrooms.

I am a passionate designer + researcher with the urge to learn and explore more. While observing the behaviours of people around me, I collaboratively work towards enhancing those experiences through creative and innovative design solutions. While procrastinating at times, I am good at finding timely Jugaads!

When I am not in the design and/or research mode, you can find me travelling and exploring a new city, doing landscape or portrait sketches, petting dogs, singing my heart out, or running a marathon. With a few years of training in Hindustani Classical Music, I love to stay connected with music in leisure hours.
