Designer / Problem-Solver / Doodler
My name is Komal, and I’m a Product Designer at Stretto and recent grad of the M.S. HCI program at Georgia Tech. I love designing creative, innovative products that solve complex problems and provide a pleasurable experience to users and are backed up by data-driven user research.
I value empathy, innovation, and serving others before yourself.One of my core principles is that you should always strive to help others using your own skills. Thus in my spare time, I have volunteered as a visual designer, graphic designer, and product designer for different organizations.

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 inclusive design. I believe in creating aesthetically pleasing designs that are purposeful and meaningful and serve everyone.
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!
