About Suyash Thakare

 

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my website. 

I'm a User Experience Researcher and Designer with a background in User Experience Design and Computer Engineering. I've joined Georgia Tech's MS-HCI program to solidify my UX skill set further. I get a kick out of using a digital system that's well-designed; an even bigger one if I'm behind it. While user research allows me to empathize with users, my background allows me to empathize with fellow designers and developers.

I firmly believe that great products are created through a symbiotic relationship between research and design. In other words, it's not just the pretty pixels that matter but also getting at the crux of understanding why designs exist the way they do and their ramifications on people's interactions.

Once I'm committed to something, I don't give up on it. During my Bachelor’s, I was conferred the “Highest Committed Student Branch Activist Award” by Computer Society of India.

I wrote an article about my stint at Reliance Industries Limited as a UX Design intern which was published online by an Indian national newspaper - The Hindu.

In my free time, I love to workout at the gym, hike, travel, watch tv-shows/movies and read books.
