About Me

Picture of Tushar Gupta

I'm a Product Designer II working on core browser experiences for Microsoft Edge. I graduated from the MS HCI program at Georgia Tech in 2021. In the past, I've worked with companies such as NASA, Google, and Cleartrip.

I originally started off as a Computer Science major during undergrad, but quickly realized that I was fascinated by the 'Why' behind the code I was writing. This led me to exploring the field of UX, and after a few side projects and freelance work, I fell in love with the art of problem solving.

I like to think of myself as a full-stack product designer who can lead a project from research & design to the prototyping phase to ensure a smooth developer handoff.

What am I like outside of work? I'm glad you asked.

👨🏾‍🍳   An amateur cook.

The pandemic turned me into an avid cooking enthusiast. As someone who barely cooked anything apart from eggs before COVID-19, I'd like to think I've come a long way by exploring various cuisines and dishes. My favourite and most frequented cuisines are Indian, Italian and Chinese.

Here are three of my recent favourite dishes:

  • Indo Chinese Platter: Chilli Paneer/Tofu Gravy, Hakka Noodles, and Spring Rolls
  • Veggie Lasagna
  • Bibimbap

🗺   Travel junkie.

I've lived in 6 cities across Asia, Europe and the States. I like to think this makes me adapt to new environments with ease, and has taught me to be curious. My favourite trip has to be Bali, Indonesia where I fell in love with the marine life during scuba diving, and ate Nasi Goreng atleast a dozen times.

👨🏾‍💻   Tinkerer.

I've built a lot of side projects to challenge myself to learn new technologies and frameworks. Most recently, I dove deep into Swift UI and built a few apps that do a small set of things really well. Up next, I want to learn Framer Motion to help improve my motion design skills.

Speaking Experience

Effective collaboration between research and design

I was part of a 6 person panel at Microsoft Design Week, an internal conference that brings together designers from all over Microsoft. We discussed the importance of collaboration between researchers and designers, and how to ensure that the insights from research are translated into design decisions.

How to Prototype Great Products

Gave a talk explaining the importance of prototyping and did a live demo with the audience following along on how to use Figma to quickly prototype your ideas using features such as Smart Animate and Overlays.

Bridging the gap between UX roles

Led a Figma Prototyping Workshop for 20 Google UX folks that focused on enabling designers to create interactive prototypes and improve future rapid prototyping design sprints using Figma and internal plugins.
