Aishwarya is an architect, experimental psychologist, and poet who works in the delta of Conscious Design, Neuroaesthetics, and Phenomenology. Currently, she’s the Lab Lead at Hume, where she is developing multimodal systems that facilitate an enactive dialogue between people and space to create science-informed, aware, and responsive design. 

As the Director for Conscious Design Development at the Centre for Conscious Design, she is fostering extensive cross-cultural strategies for scaling creative, technological, pedagogical and community engagement programs riveted on post-disciplinary research in built environment design. As the Curator at Ether (a hub for artistic explorations at the CCD), she further channelises her fervour for critical and creative expressions by engaging with and guiding a growing community of multimedia artists and designers. She is also the Founder and Director of Strategy at Conscious Design Kalpa, the think tank leading Conscious Bengaluru. 

As a strong proponent of situated consciousness, she intends to develop ways for meaningful implementation of people’s agency and lived experience in urban and spatial decision making. In life, she hopes to collate and spark advancements in the paradigm of human-space interaction to evolve experience-enriched and empathic design geared towards holistic wellbeing.
