Designer / Problem-Solver / Doodler
My name is Komal, and I’m a recent grad of the M.S. HCI program at Georgia Tech. I love designing products that provide a pleasurable experience to users and are backed up by data-driven research.
I value empathy, innovation, and serving others before yourself.
I'm currently looking for full-time UX Design and Product Design opportunities in Chicago, Illinois or Remote.

What's my story?
Originally from Houston, TX, I moved to Atlanta, GA to get a Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.
During my junior year, I realized that I wanted to combine my creativity to help improve tech-based products; thus, I decided to concentrate in the HCI and Media threads for my degree.
Eager to learn more, I pursued a Master’s in Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech so I can further learn how to design for others' mindsets and needs instead of yours.
I am a strong advocate for design thinking and believe in creating aesthetically pleasing designs that are purposeful and meaningful.
One of my core principles is that you should always strive to help others using your own skills. Thus, I strongly believe in designing innovative technologies to benefit society in some way.
What do I do for fun?
In my spare time, you can catch me at a local coffee shop, most likely sketching on my iPad Pro. I also enjoy the stage, particularly singing at sing-a-long nights. I also love playing games with a strong narrative and engaging gameplay (board, card, and video), and geeking out over particular franchises, stationery, and different cultures.
There are other things that I enjoy doing that I haven't listed out, so get to know me to find out more!
