Hi! I'm Shaleila
I'm currently a Consultant at Oliver Wyman, and was recently a UX Researcher at UCL's Interaction Center in London. A Master's in Human-Computer Interaction Master's from UCL brought me to the city. Previously, I was a Product Manager at The Atlantic. I'm based in London, by way of Mumbai, Singapore, Chicago, Washington D.C., and a few other stops along the way! I'm a creative at heart and love to design, create, and optimize. Design thinking, people-centric strategy, and the clever use of digital media fascinate me.
I also make music in my free time, and keep up with the latest in cinema - give my podcast a listen! Talk to me about FC Barcelona, K-Pop history, performing sketch comedy, or concerts.
My interests and involvement can be best expressed through my projects, so take a look!
TamponTimer, a Fitbit app to help keep TSS at bay. CSS, not TSS!
SNKS & LDNRS, a Fitbit Versa companion app that I created using the Fitbit SDK
Pill Pal, an Alexa skill for birth control education. Available now on the Alexa Skills store!
On the Wildcat Welcome Board of Directors where I served as Director for the School of Education and Social Policy
One of the culture guides I helped put together as Creative Editor for Scene+Heard, Northwestern's arts and culture publication. Look out for my design and writing work!
