June 2021, Bangalore
Hello! I’m Harshali Paralikar.
I’m a product designer, and researcher currently based in Bangalore.

I work in the intersection of Behaviour Health, Technology, and Design.

My goal is to converge these three to form a creative practice that considers care and community in building future tech tools, and to start critical conversations and inquiries on the same.

Creative writing helps me decompress. I love going cycling or skating at Cubbon Park, and revising my botany every time I'm around plants.
