Hey there! My name is Mahitha Kalyani. I identify with She/Her/Hers pronouns. I was born and raised in India and currently based in Framingham, MA.
I'm a Software Developer turned User Experience Designer with a Bachelor's in Comp. Science (from IIIT Delhi) and a Master's in HCI (from UMD).
Currently, I'm working at The MathWorks, Inc as a part of their Internal Tools and Applications team. Prior to that I was employed with the American Chemical Society, an organization that strives for scientific innovation and inquiry in the field of Chemistry. I also interned with a creative digital agency during my Master's and got to experience working on client projects.
My interests lie in the domain of interaction and visual design. I am always looking to hone my design skills by participating in design challenges or side projects.
Here are some of my Design Principles:
■ Have empathy for the user
■ Make it easy to use
■ Induce delight
■ Aim for simplicity
