About me

Hello!! My name is Swapnil Kosarabe and I am a graduate student pursuing Masters in Human-Computer Interaction at Indiana University, Indianapolis. I am currently working as a UX designer for Parkview health in collaboration with Indiana University. Before this, I interned at Microsoft as a Product designer with team Cortana.


I am an Architect turned Product designer with 4 years of experience working with startups, as a freelancer, and for student’s association while pursuing my undergraduate degree at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. I have an unusual taste of observing the things around me in a comic strip and analyzing how it fits well in the environment. This encouraged me to sketch out people and things around me in a comic strip since my childhood which turned out to be one of my strong tools to express my ideas while I am solving any problem.


Outside of work, I enjoy visiting historical sites, participating in paintings and crafts events, designing illustrations and motion designs, learning new tools and cooking new cuisines.
