My work at Microsoft
Currently, I manage a team of designers that focusses on building
file experiences in Microsoft Teams, consumer & enterprise versions of Microsoft Lists, and features that impact Microsoft 365.
I work in close partnership with Product Leadership to establish product strategy, and to promote design excellence and better craft.
In the past, I have designed OneDrive for Windows and mobile devices, and modernized the SharePoint Metadata
Admin Center (part of Microsoft Syntex), besides several features for Microsoft Office. A lot of this was foundational work for the team in India.
Additionally, I lead several key university recruitment initiatives and the design internship program for the Design Studio, that have a direct impact on the culture at Microsoft India.
