Dr. Usha Sista is the educational designer for the BARD project. She got her PhD in cognitive neuroscience from Macquarie University, Sydney. She has been in the learning design space for over eight years now. She is interested in UI/UX design, particularly the design of learning experiences. She is also interested in (and delves into these areas in an amateurish way bordering on madness) philosophy of mind, comparative religion/mythology/literature, literary fiction and non-fiction, and writing. She is looking forward to devote the next few years to a scholarly pursuit of all these disciplines while growing in the learning design space.
