From: Born in Hoshiarpur, India
High School: Templeton Secondary in 2001 with honours
Why SFU? I decided to pursue the field of Interaction Design at Simon Fraser University in 2003 after attending a conference held by the AIGA on the emergent global issue of interaction within design paradigms. This pursuit has lead me to my current studies in interaction and reception, the design praxis, and mapping cognitive interaction with respect to the design archetype.
Program: Akash completed the TechOne and Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) undergraduate program at SFU Surrey. He is currently working towards his Master's in the field of Interaction Design at SIAT. Akash is dedicated to investigating the social, cultural, technological, and environmental factors that shape views on design and its ideology in the form of information visualization and speculative design.
