information design through screens & objects

About

I’m Malika Khurana, currently a student at Carnegie Mellon University pursuing a MSc in Computational Design from my kitchen table. 

I create thoughtful objects, installations, and experiences that bridge physical and digital, often as reflections on our relationship to technology and the environment. I am trying to be a good steward for the future world.

I grew up in Boston and Dubai, studied and decided to become a designer, worked at a small design agency in London and as an interaction designer at Formlabs, and then studied some more.
