Mithila Tople

My name is Mithila Tople. I am a User Experience Designer and Interaction Developer currently pursuing my Masters in Human Computer Interaction at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am interested in novel interaction methods, interactive narratives and mobile / web app development.

I received my Bachelors in Computer Science from India, during which I loved developing logic and observing how computers could empower people. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bharatanatyam, an Indian Classical Dance. I have dabbled in theater where I enjoyed being backstage and designing the lights. These activities made me realize how motion, rhythm and structure create beautiful interactions.

Currently I am on a year long mission of self-discovery. You can read about my progress here.
