What I do
In a jesting mockery of my idiosyncrasies; a colleague of mine once pointed out that I so often start speaking by saying “I have a question...”. The act of questioning is intrinsic to who I am. I think critically, fueled by my scattered curiosities. These traits enable me to delve deeper into inquiries as a researcher, helping me unravel unapparent patterns and connections.
Here are some of the pies I have my fingers in:
Rapid Ethnography Qualitative Research
Behavioural research Insight mining & Articulation Product Strategy
Writing Creative Visualisation
Facilitating collaborative thinking
Critical and Speculative Design
Narrative Building & Storytelling
Perspectives and Insights
I'm a designer-researcher currently based out of Gurgaon. I work around behaviours in adoption and adherence of products and systems. I take personal initiative to explore Discursive Design in practice and theory. I've been working on self-initiated inquiries around experiential, attitudinal and behavioral relationships that urban citizens share with climate change.
I see design as a catalyst in creating systemic change, which when backed with the right research, can assure right impact. A larger ambition is to demonstrate effective design partnerships in yet unexplored domains.
I make comics to share my experiences and opinions. I'm obsessed with preservation– I incessantly press flowers and leaves and have made several batches of sun-dried tomatoes and unusual seasonal jams so far. I enjoy outdoor sketching and compulsively punning.
