I am Astha! 

Car enthusiast | Hummus eater


I am a currently a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon university studying Masters in Integrated Innovation for Product and Services (MIIPS).

Previously I worked as a UX designer in San Francisco working on future of autonomous vehicles (Robo-taxis) at Nissan and worked as design consultant at Echouser helping clients implement an engaging user experience for their products.

Creative approach

My creative approach is to identify the "experience gap". This gap is a vehicle from product to experience, and I like to see how technology and user behavior can bridge this gap in a fun and interactive way.
