Hi, I'm Achal.

I'm a design-focused engineer. I've always had a hard time trying to figure out whether I'm a designer or an engineer, so now I just tell people that I can do both. I'm currently helping design and build HackIllinois.

In the recent past, I've worked at frog in Shanghai as a Design Technologist and contributed to Prof. Michael Bernstein's crowdsourcing research for the Stanford HCI Group. Before that, I helped ship Reflections|Projections and Creative Market.

I go by @achalv (almost) everywhere on the internet, and respond to email sent to achalvv [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thanks for stopping by!
