computer scientist, artist, activist.
Feel free to browse this website to view my portfolio, resume, or just to get to know me.
My name is Rishma and I'm a first-year Human-Computer Interaction graduate student at Georgia Tech seeking entry-level user-centered research or design positions. Currently transitioning from a computer scientist-fine artist to UXer and design researcher. At Tech, I'm researching the ethical values behind technology practices.
I graduated from Connecticut College with a BA in computer science and a minor in studio art in 2018. I also have special certification from Conn's Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology. I am passionate about using technology and participatory design for social justice. To that end, I am working as a designer and researcher with AxisAbility, a student-led startup, to create an application which connects autistic adults with career mentors to help them find meaningful employment.
