My name is Hasnain Nazar and I am a first year masters student at the School of Information at UC Berkeley. I am getting my degree in Information Management and Systems and am focusing on user experience and product design. Before I started my masters program I was Director of Technology of the Everett program. Everett is based out of UCSC and focuses on information communication technology for development (ICT4D) and Social Entrepreneurship. We trained undergraduate students to become enterprising IT-literate activists who pursued sustainable development by working with both local and global organizations. I myself worked on projects locally (Watsonville, Santa Cruz, D.C.) and globally (Nigeria and Malaysia).
I now am excited to be in the field of UX at UC Berkeley! I hope to use this masters in order to pursue my interests around the digital divide/internet access, law & privacy, open data and design thinking for social good!
