The future is digital, but will it be equitable?

I am a designer and researcher from India, combining public pedagogy, politics, data, and speculative thinking to design for equitable futures that celebrate our collective humanity. I have pursued graduate studies in Design Innovation and Citizenship from the Glasgow School of Art to understand how individuals and society function and how these dualities shape the design and politics of the systems we occupy. My work seeks to find the friction points in peoples’ lives where design, society, politics, and culture collide. I have worked in various capacities on service design, user research, product design, and more.
