About the Team

Co-Director
Kiran Wattamwar
Co-Director
Kiran is from Edison, NJ and is currently based in Cambridge. She's a candidate of the Masters in Design Engineering, an interdisciplinary program offered by Harvard's Graduate School of Design and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. She's also a recent MIT'17 graduate, having studied Computer Science and Architecture. She is a strong proponent of interdisciplinary approaches to complex programs. Her belief is that good product design requires attention to three core values – empathy, innovation and elegance. In developing startups and large corporations, attention to these details and their broader systemic impacts is key. She's excited to see how tech continues to grow.
