Affiliation: Master’s Student, Human Computer Interaction, Georgia Tech


Focus: Designing for Stigma, HCI+ICTD, UX Research and Design

My master’s project focuses on designing technology for NGOs that work with PLHIV in India. When I’m not thinking about this- I like to cook, dance and fall in love with old movies and Tamil/French music (neither of which I speak well).
