Hi, I'm Sathyan Velumani. UX Designer/ Ethnographic Researcher, current working on a Open Source Health Information Management System, Raxa JSS EMR in New Delhi, India. I’m interested in everything – Photography, Videography(yet to make good videos though, learning!)
I have 5 years of experience in Contextual Design, User Interface and Experience Design in the field of Rural Indian mobile VAS, Mobile applications and services, and Social Web. I have created strategies for online promotion and social media for web businesses and managed execution to increase business profitability. Passionate about understanding the innate user needs and developing solutions by leveraging the latest technological advancements in Mobile telecom and Social web.
Since 2010, work and research has led me to different places and amazing experiences. I was first hired into Center for Knowledge Societies to help map consumer needs around mobile financial services, but was quickly pressed in to developing mobile application concepts to promote family planning in rural areas of India. For much of the past year I have been working on the underlying needs of new mobile adopters in diverse regions of the world, including Tamil Nadu and Bihar in India and Ghana in Africa. Most recently, I have been studying consumers’ need and attitudes towards alternative energy fuels, particularly for automobiles.
My work has led me to diverse culture and places and i would like to take more efforts to capture the different places and people and share with the community at large. I recently with Wiki love Monuments Contest started sharing my photos with the community.
