Pragya Mishra is Director at Dalberg Design based in Seattle. She applies her expertise in visual and strategy design on social innovation, financial inclusion and global health projects. She brings a human-centered approach to her work that facilitates in-depth understanding of distinct user behaviors, attitudes and preferences towards products, services, and systems leading to actionable insights.
Her recent work includes the development of Design for health – a tailored set of resources for global health practitioners that aims to showcase how the use of design in global health can lead to improvements in current practices and foster the development of innovative solutions. She has also recently worked with UNICEF and Arm to identify breakthrough opportunities for digital platforms to serve the needs of women and children in the context of urbanization, profitably and at scale, and with Omidyar Network to look at connectivity and consumer behavior in digital financial services in India.
Prior to joining Dalberg Design, Pragya worked as an independent designer with NGOs and governmental organizations on a range of social innovation projects, including some focused on improving public health systems in India, and addressing the educational needs of adolescents living in severely resource constrained regions of rural India. Pragya has a Masters in Design in Social Innovation from the School of Visual Arts (SVA), New York and an undergraduate degree in Visual Communication Design from the National Institute of Design (NID) in India.
