I received a Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in 1983, a Master of Design in Product Design from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India in 1987 and a Master of Arts (Design Development) from the Department of Industrial Design at The Ohio State University in 1997.
My thesis project involved building and testing an online prototype of WorldInfo, a Web based information resource intended for use by decision makers dealing with International Business.
I collaborated with Prof. Roberto Garcia of the Max Fisher College of Business to design Web sites for BA 856,BA 555 and BA 555H (Introduction to International Business). I am also working with Prof. Wayne Chung on the Web site of the Department of Industrial Design.
I have had over 9 years of professional experience and have also managed my own independent design consultancy. I have strong oral and written communication skills, and can work effectively in multi-disciplinary teams.
I presently work in the CD-ROM Group at the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse where I am involved in the design and development of interactive content for hybrid (with local and on-line multimedia content) HTML based CD-ROMs as well as their Web site. My responsibilities include Interface/Interaction Design, Usability Testing, Content Development and Production, and Multimedia Development.
