I am a Service designer with a background in Product and Systems design from NID, Ahmedabad and RMIT, Australia. My interests lie in trans-disciplinary design, and strategic and service thinking. Qualities such as observation, rationalisation, and proactiveness have helped me better contribute to all the endeavours that I take up in areas of Financial Services, Social Innovation and Sustainability here in the UK.
My ability to take the initiative while being a team player has enabled me to understand better the dynamics of working together. As an emerging Service Designer, I find myself passionate about problem-solving and contributing to my best ability to achieve larger goals. This project enabled me to co-create, develop, and validate an end-to-end Service proposition through a series of in-depth interviews, workshops, and feedback sessions with sensitivity, practicality and maturity.
In my final semester at the RCA, I aspire to blend the rigour of my recent achievement as the Winner of Gold Award for SDGs Design International Awards 2022 - Issued by Kyushu University, Japan along with the knowledge of Behavioural Economics in from the London Business School Elective. Going forward, in my evolving practice as a Service Designer; I aim to continue delivering impactful Services by collaborating with diverse organisations, stakeholders and project partners in the domain of Sustainable Energy Transformation.
The Royal College of Art partnered with The White Eagle Appeal and leading design agency Hellon to expand U.K. services to the Ukrainian refugee community and to help define a system that could be scaled. A team of five co-designed a service concept entitled Context, a digital friend which helps newly arrived families settle in the U.K.
Context is a browser extension which supports refugees by overlaying crowdsourced cultural interpretations of information onto existing websites. Context was developed and validated through a series of in-depth interviews, workshops and feedback sessions with members of the Ukrainian refugee community at the White Eagle Appeal.

The future of Renewable Energy holds great potential for shaping human behaviours in day-to-day life as well as in influencing the dynamics of sustainability as a whole. We see this as a great opportunity for designing a holistic and disruptive service solution for this inevitable transition that is coming our way. Our ongoing secondary and primary research indicates that there are multiple inter-linked aspects to Renewable solar energy adoption, transition, integration and ultimately, value generation.
A solar-powered future goes beyond scientific research and uniform solar panels. Designers need to treat solar energy as a material and service rather than just a piece of technology. Let's imagine and create a solar future that we would all care for and be excited about. Hence, our approach aims to go beyond customer & profit centricity and towards an equitable synergetic model for Solar Energy ecosystems. Stay tuned and connected to join us in our journey as we collaborate with multiple subject-matter-experts from Energy Consulting to Charities.
IT IS TIME TO CREATE SPACE FOR WONDER, BRING THE HUMAN DIMENSION IN, AND GENERATE A MORE INCLUSIVE AND HOLISTIC NARRATIVE FOR SOLAR ENERGY.
