Bio

Priya Dasgupta-Yeung is the Director of Learning Design at SU. She is an engineer by training, and an educator by choice. She strives to build learning experiences that motivate students to find their passion and enable them to pursue it well after they have left her classroom.

Priya has a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and conducted research on nanoscale magnetic materials at Columbia University. Since then, she has evolved from a teacher to product manager to instructional designer, designing curriculum for K-12, test prep, professional development, and online graduate degrees along the way.

Outside the office, she is most likely found chasing after her twin daughters, or exploring new ways to trick herself into exercising.
