Mugdha Kulkarni
Mugdha Kulkarni
Information Architect & Certified Scrum Master
IBM India Private Limited

 

Working with IBM as an information architect, Mugdha has progressed in this role by intent. She has been working in the communication industry since 2000 - first as a copywriter, then as a technical writer, and now as an IA. Her inquisitive mind has taken her through the eventful journey into the world of adult learning theories, minimalism, Neuroscience, empathy, cognition, and interaction design. The journey seems endless in this life.

 

Mugdha considers herself fortunate for having access to the right information and exposure to the right professional environment. While witnessing and experiencing the transformation of information developers into content designers, she is keen on sharing her experiences, challenges, and 'aha moments' with others. That seems to be the easiest way to learn and grow.

In her spare time, Mugdha is often found reading Bhagavadgeeta or Valmeeki Ramayana.
