Hello, I'm Karthik Srinivasan.
I'm pursuing my Master's degree at Georgia Tech. In 2015, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from SRM University, India.
After working for almost couple of years as a developer, I realized that I care so much about the usability of what I was making. I raised questions over requirement sheets. I wanted to know for whom I was developing a feature for, and how my design benefitted the end user. Gradually, my passion for UX Research grew, and I learnt a bit on my own and applied it. I felt that a professional degree and academic research would give me ample scope to broaden my exposure to UX Research.
Currently, I'm pursuing my Masters in Human Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech. At Tech, I took classes, and worked on several projects as an UX Research lead. I am also a UX Researcher at the Culture And Technology (CAT) Lab at Tech. I am a mixed methods researcher and a thoughtful designer.
I have always been a story-teller. But as a researcher, I get to do this investigative story-telling, and also much more than that - to impact the lives of millions and shape my future as well as that of many others'. My motto is to ease technology for humans. As a UX Researcher, I am do that on every single day. I feel passionate and fulfilled about Research, as it empowers me to do what I care for.
I have a passion for all things tech, screen writing, and world affairs. In my spare time, you can always find me researching about gadgets or writing stories. I love meeting/connecting with people and learning about their story and passions, so shoot me a message anytime! :)
