My name is Nishita and I am a UX Designer & Researcher based in Bangalore, India. I last worked for IBM Watson in the US before moving back to India after 6 years. Currently, I am working as an independent Design Consultant.

My professional experience includes various domains such as big data, e-commerce, travel, environment and medical applications. I have a background in engineering, a Master’s in Human Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon and have worked for both product companies and design agencies such as IBM, R/GA, Expedia, etc.

I aspire empower people by creating products that are thoughtful, simple and elegant. Being a generalist, I enjoy doing both UX design and Research. My strengths include my ability to support my designs with research; quickly grow in domain complexity; and be the bridge between the tech and the design teams.

On a personal note, I enjoy photography, traveling and table tennis. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to have spent a great part of my holidays on the beautiful island of Mauritius, near South Africa.
