MIT Mobile Experience Lab

Suruchi Dumpawar was born and raised in central India, where she graduated with a B.Tech in Electronics and Communications Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Nagpur.
She is one of the authors of the study conducted by the MIT in partnership with La Fabrique de la Cité on emerging global trends in urban millennial lifestyles.

Suruchi Dumpawar worked at Oracle SSI, Bangalore as a part of the Interfaces & Conversions team developing interfaces across various modules of Oracle applications.

After receiving her photography education at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, she co-founded Lucida-an art, research and education driven photographers’ collective. Her photography work exploits the idiom of documentary photography to wheedle out visual narratives by revealing subtle details, making connections apparent and informing insights into her subjects.

She hopes to utilize her background in visual communication and information technology to explore the notion of experientiality through multiple media platforms. A self-proclaimed film buff and a fledgling filmmaker, Suruchi Dumpawar has a keen interest in digital storytelling.
