👋🏽 Hello! I'm Rutvi (she/her) and I am a researcher & designer striving to co-design equitable experiences and outcomes. 

I care deeply about community, culture, and access. I am currently @ Nava PBC where I am working on Caseflow, a web application with a mission to increase timely and accurate appeals decisions for Veterans and their families.

💪🏽 Outside of 9-5: Professionally, I am also the co-founder of Hatke and consult with Moonshot Global Consulting. Personally, you can find me learning how to befriend my pressure cooker, making travel plans for the distant future, and buying far too many books. 

🧠 Currently pondering: What's the balance of operationalizing and leaving room for creativity? When is co-creation empowering, and when is it extractive? How can equity pauses be better built into the design process from the onset?

🙏🏽 Please bear with me as I embark on the adventure of updating my portfolio. Till then, here is a sneak peek into a few projects from the past few years I would love to chat more about!  

  • Research Operations: I operationalized our user research practices, processes, and norms for our program
  • Caseflow:  I have led the design and research for several high-impact features in collaboration with the Board of Veterans' Appeals
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts: I have served as the co-lead of our largest employee resource group, initiated and co-led an internal research effort to improve employee spaces, and co-led a series of discussions around race and tech
  • The {In}Dependent Project: My graduate thesis focused on moving citizens to participate in public commenting to support dependent spouses
  • ESSA Report Card Challenge: a 2-day challenge around visualizing report cards for the U.S. Dept of Education (we won "Best Overall Design"!)
  • Mapping Intersectionality: visualizing Kimberlé Crenshaw's "Mapping the Margins"
