Hi! I am Purnendu.

I am an interaction designer, entrepreneur and experimental physicist. I am passionate about developing systems and interfaces on pushing the envelope of human computer interaction with a flavor of material science and nanotechnology. My previous work spans interaction design, soft robotics, nanofabrication, nanomaterials and tangible interaction design. I am also interested in personal fabrication. I graduated with an Integrated Master's degree in physics (with specialization in material science) from the Indian Institute of Technology (I.I.T), Roorkee.

In past, I have co-founded a nanotechnology company, Log 9 Materials in India, which focuses on manufacturing and developing commercial applications around the wonder material, Graphene. I have also co-founded a multidisciplinary Design Studio at IIT Roorkee. My work portfolio includes internships at other HCI research labs, including The HCI Group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Germany, as well as Bauhaus University, Germany. Earlier, working as a freelance UI-UX designer I have managed a wide variety of cross-media projects involving branding, illustrations, products, UX design and development for startups as well as industry leaders.
