Hi, I'm Somya.

Pronounce "Sonya" with "m"

I'm currently a product designer at Facebook, working on Facebook Watch, focusing on the videos experience across emerging markets, video player and discovery of Facebook's premier Shows content. Previously, I was a product designer at if(we) (acquired by Meet Me), where I spent most of my time optimizing and growing company's core product Tagged, mentoring other designers on the team, led user research and Android design.

Before that, I was at Carnegie Mellon University for my master's degree in Interaction Design. My hybrid background in architecture, visual communication and interaction design allows me to solve problems and create experiences at both macro and micro level. 

I’m interested in behaviors, motivations and cultural contexts. I strongly believe that behaviors and products are interdependent. Behaviors and contexts shape different products but products also shape behaviors over time. 

I get most exciting thoughts when I’m walking. In my spare time, I like to cook, travel, craft or mentor. 

If you want to know more about me, hit me up for tea or a coffee ice cream!
