I was born and raised in Pune, India where I got a degree in Computer Engineering. I went on to get a Master’s degree in Human Computer Interaction from Georgia Tech after an internship at a mobile application development company made me realize that a great product was worth nothing if people didn’t know how to use it. I started learning more about design thinking and qualitative research and that led me to do an internship at eBay where I focused on personalized shopping experiences. I collaborated with a children’s museum in Atlanta for my Master’s project that focused on educational technology which would help children between the ages of 4-10 learn more about STEM through interaction with a virtual buddy. I joined Facebook after graduating with my Master’s degree in 2016 and am on the Marketplaces team. I am passionate about the user and creating an experience that is transparent.
