Karan Shastri

MASc graduate

I am a Masters student in the Systems Design Engineering department at the University of Waterloo. My research and thesis, under the supervision of Professor Jennifer Boger, concentrates on developing computer-based tools and studying what happens when people develop mild cognitive impairment or early-stage dementia while still working. My interests lie in prototyping, UI/UX, human factors, and HCI. I completed my Bachelor's education in Computer Science and Engineering in 2017. I also serve as the president for UW's Human Factors and Ergonomics Society student chapter. I read books and swim in my spare time.
