👋🏾 Hi, I’m Aishwarya Vardhana; a full stack product designer with a specialization in Trust and Safety and machine learning. I care deeply about building ethical, inclusive, and responsible technology, and I’ve designed multiple 0-1 products over the last 8+ years. My strengths are in crafting narratives around the human experience within the products I design, prioritizing user needs throughout the product design journey, and stewarding collaboration across teams. Our digital ecosystem is teeming with products so my intention is to design experiences that are unique in their simplicity, humility, and thoughtfulness. In my free time I mentor junior designers and write a newsletter on the emotions behind technology.
