“What I firmly believe is that every computer programme, every application and system ultimately comes down to a human! Because it is humans who would ultimately be using them. Thus I want to make the humans’ experience with computers a better and a more enjoyable one. I want to help make the interaction seamless! Thus I aspire to learn more about Human Computer Interaction and become an expert in the field, introducing new dimensions the humans’ computer experience.”
