I am a story-teller and design thinker. Identifying unmet needs, enabling user-centric approach through deep empathy and being a voice of the user has been my forte along with synthesising research and generating insights to assimilate information to draw patterns using Design Thinking process. I am particularly interested in building innovative solutions that are socially, environmentally and financially sustainable using design thinking and product - service -system modules.
Currently I am pursuing my Masters at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to MIT, I was heading design at Embrace Innovations, a social enterprise that developed an innovative low-cost infant warmer designed for use in developing countries. Embrace is the recipient of multiple awards and accolades including The Economist Innovation Award, Schwab 2013 Social Enterprise of the Year, and the INDEX: Design to Improve Life Award.
I have conducted Design Thinking workshops for over 4000 individuals across the globe at places such as Bombay Stock Exchange, Be a social change - New York, Embrace Innovations, RIME-University of Michigan, Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Indian School of Business, Maharani Gayatri Devi School Jaipur and many Institutes in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and in a number of prestigious Engineering colleges in collaboration with Indian School of Business across Andhra Pradesh.
