UX designer, MBA
Interested in the intersection of technology and design, and how those two fields can come together to create meaningful and intuitive experiences for users.
My key strengths are:
“Design is about 3 dimensions and 5 senses” – Sacks.
My understanding of empathy is to try and walk in the user’s shoes; aka to have the same emotional and mental experience as users. By being a good listener and communicator, I have empathized with users in every project.
Research takes up a lot of space in my projects; before, during, and post-launch. Although I am self-taught in research, I have practiced lots of primary and secondary research. Currently, taking a course in data analysis on how to analyze quantitative/qualitative data using Excel.
I get inspired by working closely with developers, product managers, and other stakeholders while ensuring that everyone is aligned on the project goals and the user’s needs. I have realized that is important to communicate clearly and be present while collaborating with my team.

Tufts CREATE Solutions

(Tufts Institute for Global Obesity Research)
Created a website and logo design for the global obesity research department of Tufts University.
Tufts COVID Tracer
UI designer for the Tufts COVID Tracer app , an effort to fight the spread of Covid19 among members of Tufts community.
I’m a user experience designer with a great passion for design and a desire to positively impact people’s lives. UX design to me is beyond the design of a product/service; it is primarily the psychology of its users and the business.
That is why I have taken a deep interest in studying MBA to understand the business mindset while creating products that meet users’ needs.
A little about my design thinking/process:
Use UX design principles to look, listen and learn about problems.
Excel at creating order out of chaos; whether distilling research insights or dealing with a giant spreadsheet, I enjoy having hands-on the tiniest details – and then cleaning it up.
Use visualization to create systems, communicate research findings, and better understand complex relationships.
Find ways to co-create – with users and stakeholders. The best work happens when we bring others into our process; so I tend to spend lots of time facilitating and listening.
