Hi, I'm Isha Wadhavkar.

I believe that great design bridges the gap between human behavior, aesthetics, and qualitative research. I strive to create solutions that are not only visually appealing but also deeply intuitive and user-centric, ensuring every interaction is meaningful and impactful.

I am a recent graduate with a Master's in Information, specializing in UX Research and Design, from the University of Michigan.

 

During my studies, I honed my skills in accessibility problem-solving, multi-touchpoint experiences, and human-centric thinking through various projects. Now, I am eager to apply my knowledge and creativity to new challenges and opportunities in the professional world.

I love watching psychological thrillers, painting at 2am, crochet and reading romantasy novels.

This is me.

My Story

Before venturing into the world of UX design, I began my career as a mechanical engineer. With a solid foundation in research and a biomechanics internship at Harvard Medical School, I developed a keen eye for detail and a deep appreciation for the intricacies of human interaction. 

However, my story isn't just about engineering and research. I've always been a creative person, an artist at heart. From painting vivid canvases to crafting intricate crochet pieces, my artistic endeavors have taught me the importance of aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail. 

The amalgamation of my technical background and artistic passion sets me apart as a UX designer. I bring a unique perspective that combines rigorous research and analytical thinking with creativity and empathy.

"In every piece of design, I see a canvas for creativity and a blueprint for problem-solving."

Experience

With over 3 years of experience, I bring a unique blend of technical expertise and creative flair to every project.
