Hello! I'm Devika. I started working with design right out of school seeking all things creative, thoughtful, and exploratory.
A generalist at heart, I was interested in product design because it gave me an opportunity to pursue my interests in art, business, and psychology. Over the past 5 years, I've worked on a range of problem areas—including SaaS, education, and healthcare.
I'm a systems thinker who naturally gravitates towards strategy and product problems. However, I care deeply about the quality of my screens and also focus on improving my craft each day. The best user experiences to me are cohesive, fluid, and playfully unpredictable, summarising what I strive for in the products I help design.
I was born and raised in Oman/India and have recently moved to the states for my master's. Here at Carnegie Mellon, I'm learning about emerging technologies, research methodologies, and design impact. When I'm not working, I'm cooking, illustrating, or making elaborate to-do lists.
