I work as the Design Lead at Qubole Inc. where I am responsible for designing the autonomous data platform and managing the design strategy as well as the creative team.
During my previous stints working on Oracle Cloud and Wolfram Research, I contributed with requirement gathering, research, ideation, brainstorm and design of many data driven products across different media including mobile, desktop and web.
I have a Masters degree from the University of Michigan, School of Information, Ann Arbor, specializing in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Social Computing (SC). I did my undergraduate studies from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, India with specialization in Interaction Design.
While the scientific community enriches us with technological innovations, I, as a designer, look upon myself as the one who encapsulates them into a tangible form. Design, to me, is a problem solving process for which connecting to the end users and understanding their needs, experiences and frustrations is important. It is for achieving these goals that I want to work in an environment that nurtures excellence with a spirit of innovation.
