ABOUT ME

Sonali Verma is a Cancer Advocate and Fitness Lover living in Berkeley, California.

 

I am a senior at the University of California, Berkeley, studying Cognitive Science with a focus in Cognitive Psychology and Human-Centered Design. My interdisciplinary major and past design internships at IBM Design and Cisco Systems have shaped the way I think, communicate, and break down problems. I use qualitative and quantitative research methods to understand user behavior and create well-designed experiences that enhance and extend the way people work, communicate, and interact. I’m particularly interested in organizational, healthcare, and social network design projects, for I enjoy the process of breaking down complex problems in order to design simple and intuitive solutions. 

Outside of my work experience, I am passionate about teaching my peers the value of design thinking and giving back to my Berkeley community. As Vice President of Berkeley Innovation, I mentored thirty-five student consultants as they worked on semester-long human-centered design projects with their clients. My mentorship responsibilities include holding human-centered design bootcamps, professional/career workshops, and planning UC Berkeley’s first design career fair! I am now an instructor for a student-led design course, where I teach human-centered design methodologies to eighty students interested in learning practical design skills such as user research, prototyping, and user testing. 

I’m currently seeking full-time design opportunities! If you liked my work or have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email at verma_sonali@berkeley.edu. Thanks for stopping by!
