As Equalize Health’s Research Associate, Vishal discovers the core value of user research - "for whom and for what purpose we are designing" and takes the lead in creating methodological research plans that set a strong foundation for Equalize Health's product development.
In his decade-long professional experience, Vishal has worked as an industrial designer for the healthcare sector at Stanford India Biodesign, followed by design consulting for various government bodies as well as private organizations. Looking back at his Human-Centered Design (HCD) approach and its impact on various projects, he was motivated to join Equalize Health.
Vishal holds an Industrial Design degree from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune. He is originally from rural Pune and grew up in a humble background in Mumbai. He wants to make an impactful difference in low-resource communities.
When not working, Vishal likes to play sports, do craftwork, and sometimes write poetry.
