About Me

The human experience is paramount and my mission is to spot issues with the user experience making them vanish. The user experience should bring joy to your users and the best return on investment to you as the service or product creator. I am currently pursuing a double degree Masters in HCI and Design.

EttTak is a startup working to match students with senior people who can provide accommodation in their homes. I am researching on new interaction techniques that could build trust among the two generations for possible co-living.

Accomplishments

  • Redesigning the user experience and interface of Pagalguy.com, an organization I worked with. Migrating to a new and improved interface was met with resistance as it is with any sudden change. But our user retention rate stabilized and increased over time. Now, it has over 23000 groups on various topics.
  • As part of a team in the EIT Digital Kick-off event, our team won the first place for coming up with the most viable business plan. The plan catered to the increasing need to "know what's in your food". People are more conscious about what they eat and should easily be able to find information about their food.
  • Participated in LivHacks Esports Hackathon by StageCast where we designed an e-sport idea. We won the place for "Best Fun Game" at the event.

Random bars giving a percentage on skill level may be ineffective to measure the value one can provide. Let's have a chat and discuss what we can offer to each other. Thanks.
