Somesh Rahul - Bringing clarity to complexity via IA / Design and Teaching.

I'm driven by the principle of "making the complex clear". Under the mentorship of Dan Klyn, I'm learning to master this principle. I love coming up with shrewd solutions to complex problems, and my cultural background from India gives me a multifarious perspective on most of the challenges.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance, and a master’s degree in Human Computer Interaction from the School of Information at the University of Michigan. While at U-M, I was among the top performing students and was a member of the honor society Phi Kappa Phi. At the School of Information, I was a Graduate Student Instructor and assisted Dr. Charles Severance in teaching “Building Interactive Web Applications” to both graduate and undergraduate students.

Prior to graduate school, I worked in India as a computer engineer for Mercedes Benz Research & Development. I love entrepreneurship and have co-founded a couple of startups, one of which was a non-profit that provided computer literacy to orphans.

I'm a foodie and can talk about food all day :)
