I'm a design enthusiast pursuing M.S. Human-Computer Interaction program. I possess a strong desire for Design Research, User Experience & Product Design.

I'm fortunate to have design oriented views & want to possess "Design Thinking". For me "Design" is the amalgamation of Art + Technology + Psychology + Research.

I believe that "Design" is a strategy we(designers) use to shape[aesthetics, usability] & make[craft, iterations] things[products] function in a right[efficient, natural] way! Design has the power to impact one's life. It's in our hands to make a positive impact through our designs.

My first Master's degree is in Computer Applications[Software Development] along with an internship experience in Front-End Development & U.I. Visualization.

At present, I'm pursuing second Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction.

Looking forward to obtain the best comprehensive design knowledge along with practical/research experience & contribute back to this world as a designer/practitioner!
