Designing for action, delighting with details. I’m Avyay, a humanist researcher and detail oriented designer, working at the intersection of engagement & behaviour change. My background in design enables me to leverage a variety of methods and theories to develop innovative & novel solutions that drive lasting change. I am currently a student at Indiana University Bloomington pursuing an MS in Human Computer Interaction Design.

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.
