Hi, I'm Atharva 👋

Product designer bridging the gap between people & technology. Currently leading design at Atlas AI.

At Atlas AI, I design geospatial market intelligence tools. Previously, I worked on designing advanced flight search experiences at Kayak & the driver-partners apps at Olacabs crafting experiences for the next billion users across Southeast Asia.
I explore emerging tech in my spare time building interactive prototypes using machine learning, Threejs & open-source hardware. Find them on the Play Page.
I enjoy talking to new people, both to learn and share. Please don't hesitate to reach out via Email, Twitter or LinkedIn.

don't touch face

Designed & developed a ML web app to alert if someone is touching their face

↳ Built as a response to a growing public health crisis and a shift in the increased time spent in front of laptops/desktops.

Beginning a career in design by cutting my teeth at startups like as MagicX & Cubeit.
