Aman Sinha —

Hey, I'm Aman. I deeply care about how everything people interact with looks, feels, and works — and how might we make those interactions more delightful.


Currently a Design Research Fellow at the School of Design, at Carnegie Mellon University in partnership with UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital, co-creating solutions for complex care coordination in oncology.

I hold a master's in Product and Service Innovation from the CMU Integrated Innovation Institute. At CMU, I have worked in different capacities around products for companies including UPMC, Canon USA, and PLUS. I have also been part of teams winning major international product competitions like the Philips Student Service Design Challenge and McGinnis Venture Competition.

Prior to CMU, I was leading product design at Handyland, where I helped ship products and services to 12+ global clients across Fintech, Edtech, and wellness domains.

CMU Integrated Innovation Institute wrote a short piece highlighting my CMU journey.

I'd love to hear from you and create an impact, together!
