Priyanka Dhapare | student
Priyanka is a UI/UX designer from Mumbai, India. She completed her Bachelors in Computer Engineering with a "Certificate of Merit" awarded by the Dean. During this time she won multiple competitions such as Android App Design Contest and Saavishkar (final year project competition) organized by the Computer Engineering department. She also presented two papers in IEEE International Conference for Convergence in Technology along with her colleagues.
After graduation, Priyanka worked on a research project for one of her undergrad professors followed by working at Zydelo Inc as a UI/UX designer. At Zydelo, Priyanka quickly grew into her role as a designer and also took up additional responsibilities of managing the team and playing a crucial part in project management.
She is a firm believer in the notion of "Learning by doing" which is why she thinks that MDM is such a great fit for her since the course is very hands-on. She is a quick learner and is excited to take up new challenges.
Her goal with MDM is to collaborate with people from various different backgrounds to work on projects that have far-reaching effects. She wants to gain a deeper understanding of user behavior in order to better herself at user-centered design to create the best possible experience. Additionally, she would also like to hone her project management skills so that she is equipped to take on the role sometime in the future.
