I am a Design Researcher at the University of Arizona in Phoenix. I love technology culture, Media and design. The first novel I ever read was Made in Japan by Akio Morita when I was 16 (late starter!), followed by John Grisham's legal thrillers ( pretty much fiction I ever read!). Originally trained as an architect, in India I have worked in the fields of spatial design, animation and product design. After coming to US, I have worked in fields of nanotechnology and Personalized Medicine focusing on user-centered design and hold a graduate degree in Design Research from Arizona State University. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling and watching 60 minutes, TED talks etc. On a lighter side I enjoy Seinfeld, Two and a Half Men, Bollywood movies and travel/food shows such as Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations.
