HI, I'M HIRA.

I'm a mixed methods UX Researcher and current graduate student studying Human Computer Interaction and Human Factors at Rice University.

My graduate training has given me the rigor and training needed to break down complex problems and deliver user-centered solutions. With over 6 years of startup experience, I understand the importance of working efficiently, effectively, and with strong communication.

I care a lot about making systems and products that are usable for everyone.
