Welcome to my world
Hi, I'm Avyay.
But you can call me Avy :)
I’m a Masters student at IUB, with 2 years of of experience as a UX Designer at Reliance Jio and a couple of degrees from IIT Bombay.
Doodling Ferraris on my high school tables sparked a passion for designing meaningful and engaging experiences with emergent technologies. Through my research in human-computer interaction, I have gained valuable insights into designing solutions that benefit marginalized communities. My interests include building for health-tech, operationalising user delight & designing for engagement. As a designer, I find solace in paying attention to the smallest details and crafting meaningful microinteractions. I am constantly driven to learn more about the intersection between human behavior and technology, as I believe this understanding is crucial in creating effective and impactful designs.
