Role & Impact

My team focuses on file discovery, sharing, viewing, and collaboration experiences in Teams on desktop

My work at Microsoft
Currently, I manage a team of designers that focusses on building
file experiences in Microsoft Teams on desktop, and on multiple feature areas in Microsoft Lists for web and mobile.
My work involves collaborating with Product Leadership on various aspects of product strategy, and advocating for design
excellence and better craft.
In the recent past, I have designed OneDrive for Windows and mobile devices, and modernized the SharePoint Metadata
Admin Center (part of Microsoft Syntex). A lot of this was foundational work for the team in India.
Beyond core work, I drive key university recruitment, internship, and D&I initiatives for the Design Studio, which
has a direct impact on the business and culture at Microsoft India.
