DEED is proud to welcome our new research assistant, Aabhira Aditya, to our team. Aabhira worked as a Product Designer after graduating from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in India. Besides working in the packaging and lifestyle product industry, She has collaborated with NGO’s toward the socio-economic development of indigenous craftswomen and special societies with disabilities. She is excited to work with DEED and become a part of the adventures and responsibilities that come with it. She is currently attending the Transdisciplinary Design program at Parsons and is exploring the city in her spare time (if she gets any!). She misses her dog, Stupi and the warm weather in India.
