Portrait of Aditi Suryanarayan

Passionate about: Understanding human behavior, motivation, and decision-making. I am driven by a desire to influence change in ways that positively impact individuals as ‘users’ of products and services.

Experience: Over 5 years of experience working in research and research-related roles at startups in India and the United States. As the first (and sometimes, only) researcher at these companies, I helped establish best practices for research, contributed to product development initiatives, and collaborated with clients to conduct research for products at different stages of development across various industries.

Studied: M.A. in Cognitive Psychology, Ball State University; M.A. in Clinical Psychology, Pune University; and B.A. in Psychology, Pune University

For fun: Exploring California’s many hiking trails and parks, reading, and playing board games
