Hi I am Tarika Jain, an Industrial designer pursuing my masters degree in Design, engineering and management at Carnegie Mellon University. I received my bachelors degree in Industrial design from Parsons The New School for Design. My true passion for design lies in solving real world problems related to health, environment and society.
Having worked in a variety of industries such as medical, fashion, music and consumer electronics, I now plan to integrate my tactile design skills with digital experiences to create truly immersive smart systems. I also like to incorporate a sustainable design thinking in all my projects. Being originally from India, I also understand the value of culture and its craftsmanship and therefore like to explore other cultures and find their application in my work.
Some of my other interests include hiking, adventure sports, photography and painting which often serve as tools for inspiration in my work.
