Executive Vice President: Dakshata Shukla

Dakshata Shukla is currently studying User Experience Design and Human-centered Data Science at the Faculty of Information. She holds a Bachelor’s in Information Technology Engineering from SRM Institute of Science and Technology and has prior work experience as a Product Designer in the education technology industry, from India. 

As the EVP, and with MISC back in full swing after the pandemic, Dakshata is excited to meet students across the Faculty of Information and learn about how their experience at the iSchool can be optimized. As someone with a knack for organizing information (notes, desks, pipelines, websites – you name it) she’s especially eager to work on the 2022-2023 MISC Design System. She also plans to conceive the MISC Records for easier access and planning, for future councils. 
Reach out to her for any suggestions you may have about improving the graduate experience at the iSchool or even just to chat over a coffee!
