Profile

Arpita Bhattacharya

I am a fourth year PhD candidate in the Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington, Seattle. I am passionate about qualitative research and design methods. My research focus is on learning to design technologies that can empower people to manage their mental wellbeing. I am co-advised by Julie Kientz and Sean Munson .

I am from Mumbai, India. I completed my Master's in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta) in May 2015. I got my Bachelors in Computer Engineering from University of Mumbai in 2013.

I enjoy learning and strive for work-life balance for meaningful brain-functioning. I love to wander and explore the world, eat desserts, sketch, and watch cartoons.
