Nikhila is currently a 2nd year Master's student in Human Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech. She completed her undergrad in Computer Science and worked as a front end developer for 3 years. While she did love what she did, she soon came to realize that solving problems was more than just pushing out solutions mechanically, it was about handcrafting experiences for real needs of people to truly touch their lives. That brought her to HCI & UX. Her research interests lie in data visualization, virtual & augmented reality, ubiquitous computing, health tech and machine learning.
