2014 Master of Science in Information graduate Krishna Vadrevu is a user experience designer for Nutanix, an enterprise company that develops cloud platforms for organizations the world over. 

Krishna applies the world-class human-computer interaction education he received at the University of Michigan School of Information (UMSI) while designing products for disparate customers with different needs surrounding their datacenter and cloud services experience. 

I view the Master of Science in Information degree fundamentally as a comprehensive deep dive into how humans interact with information, and the human-computer interaction concentration as a specific aspect of that. The Contextual Inquiry course I took in the beginning of my program really brought together all different concentrations, including design, library sciences, data science and many others to solve a real problem in the workplace. That was so vital to learning about how interdisciplinary the field really is and all the various aspects of information science.
