Tahira combines a passion for storytelling with human behaviour to inform effective product design. As a woman of colour, she has actively sought out research and design projects which advocate for diversity, inclusivity and do their part in challenging inequality. Following her BEng in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Sheffield, she worked as an Upstream User Researcher at Dyson.
Tahira is also the founder of Teecaake, an illustration company which produces unique designs inspired by strong figures representing values of diversity, inclusivity, confidence and colour.
Having graduated from the MA/MSc Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London, Tahira will continue as a UI/UX designer where she will work at the intersection of technical research, data analytics, and user-centric design.
