Keyur comes to CIID with experiences spanning between engineering and design. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2013 and studied Industrial design intensive at the Umeå Institute of Design in 2015-16. In between the two schools, he worked at a design consultancy in Florida where he facilitated development of consumer products. While he enjoyed tinkering with the inner workings that go into machines, it was the “interface” that exists between the “day-to day machines” and humans that really struck with him. While at CIID, he wishes to explore the designer’s role in shaping that experiential side of interactions.

Keyur is interested in the possibilities for intersections between interaction design and systems thinking and their implementation towards creating meaningful and impactful solutions for people. He is keen on investigating the various mediums – tangible, audible and everything in between – that could be harnessed to enable better ways for humans and tech to interact.
