Pranav Mistry


Currently, I am the Head of Think Tank Team and Director of Research of Samsung Research America. Before that I was a Research Assistant and PhD candidate at the MIT Media Lab. In past, I worked with Microsoft, Google, CMU, NASA, UNESCO, Japan Science & Technology to name a few. I received my Master in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT and Master of Design from IIT Bombay. I received my bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering. Oh, I also dropped out of Architecture School prior to that. Palanpur, a small town situated in northern Gujarat in India, is my hometown. Exposure to fields like Design to Technology and from Art to Psychology gave me a quite nice/interesting viewpoint to the world. I love to see technology from design perspective and vice versa. This vision reflects in almost all of my projects and research work as well. in short, I do what I love and I love what I do. I am a 'Desigineer' :)
