Sareena is an engineer from San Francisco. She currently works at an automotive startup, developing models for optimizing manufacturing processes. Prior to her work in the automotive industry, she worked at Apple in Soft Goods manufacturing and helped launched several iPhone leather enclosures.

Before moving to the San Francisco bay area, Sareena studied at MIT and received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. During school she developed an interest in product design, and her work experiences exposed her to the importance of good design practice when mass manufacturing products.

Sareena feels fortunate to have worked on a variety of products from prototype to production, and now would like to expand her knowledge of design beyond the physical space. She’s looking forward to broadening her interests in the next year on the Interaction Design Programme.
