Gazal Maleki

Product Designer

I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a Master of Science  in Sports Product Design. My early professional life was as a mechanical engineer with a Master of Mechanical Engineering giving in-depth knowledge in data collection and technical analysis. This eventually led me to North Carolina State University at the College of Design where I served as a teaching assistant until 2020.
Moving forward, these experiences led me to dive deeper into the SPD program, which allowed me the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by learning about textile and materials deeply and by designing plus the prototyping, but with a much deeper focus on human-centered design and the end-to-end customer product experience.
