I am a passionate designer and educator. My approach is firmly grounded in applying the principles of Design Thinking to Problem Solving, Team Management, Design Consulting, Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
Currently I am the Director and Head of Operations of India Studio of L’école de design Nantes Atlantique, one of the leading Design schools in France. I am also the Managing Trustee of the Happy Horizons Trust, that uses the power of Design Thinking, Community based learnings and alternative education interventions (story telling, game based learning, learning through films and videos) to improve the quality of school education in India.
Recently I have co-founded and function as the Director of Academics at Product Innovation Academy. This was set up to help the current talent in the industry get familiar with the latest tools of Innovation, gain contemporary domain knowledge around Product Management, User Experience, Design Thinking. These in my opinion are key ingredients that are essential as we strive to build better technology products and solutions out of India.
