Hey there!

I'm Mital Kamani, a UX designer based in the US. I am currently pursuing my master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Maryland, College Park.

 

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science, which allows me to look at the design from a technical standpoint as well as advocate for the needs and desires of users. I've discovered that, through thoughtful design, technology has the unique potential to accommodate individual diversity. With this knowledge, I hope to design products that users of all types enjoy using.

Curious to unleash my creativity and

                passion for greater social impact

     by making people's lives easier.

What do I do?

I have previous experience working as a Web designer+developer, Graphic designer, and UX/UI designer in the industry and nonprofits.

I also have worked as a research assistant in academia.

Currently......??

Volunteering as a UX Researcher at WISE cities to foster social activities among older adults.

 Working on the research project "CAREER: Advancing Remote Collaboration: Inclusive Design for People with Dementia

(As part of THAT (The Health, Aging, and Technology) LAB at the University of Maryland, College Park)

Testimonial

Mital has volunteered under my supervision as a UI/UX designer. Our weekly meetings have shown her punctuality to maximize discussion time, preparedness to tackle issues, and awareness of how to move forward with a project. There have also been occasions where because of her expertise, Mital is able to work independently without my guidance, leaving small room for improvement and critique on my end! She has gained knowledge in several areas which include researching best practices for usability, rapid prototyping based on research, and iterating based on constructive feedback.

In one of Mital’s long-term projects, she had to create interfaces for educators and students while simultaneously combining them under a single design system. Although she worked with a product manager who detailed what the features are, design patterns for this interface are rarely found in everyday tools, making this a daunting task to take on. Still, she made significant progress each week and posed valid questions on what needed to be considered to improve the interface. Motivated by her curiosity, Mital strives for better usability without sacrificing visual aesthetics in her work, making her a valuable asset to our team.
