A bit about me...

I am Vikas Luthra, the first year Master's Student pursuing my major in Human Computer Interaction from Georgia Tech , US. Born in a small town in India, I have always been an introspective, intellectual, hardworking and curious being. I did my undergraduate education at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in Guwahati, India , where I earned my Bachelor’s with Major in Design and Minor in Electronics and Communication engineering. Before coming to Georgia Tech, I worked for 2yrs as a User Experience researcher at Samsung Research Bangalore, India. I worked in niche and exciting areas like accessibility for visually impaired, Voice based personal agents, Macro behaviour and needs for low income youth in India. In past I have also worked in area of learning and instruction via technology, data visualization and online executive dashboards. My research interests lie at the intersection of technology, design, well-being and behavioural psychology. I love to understand deep human experiences, needs and try to fulfil them through my design. I am interested in idea of improving people’s lives through design and have a positive impact on the world around me through my research.
