Her impact comes across loud and clear.
- Desireh’s first Apple project as an intern was quite a conversation piece: Working with the team creating the latest iPhone, she focused on a chip that sends and receives calls. She remembers being excited about solving an actual business problem as an innovator, not a spectator. Longtime team members saw her as an essential part of the group.
- After finishing her PhD at the University of Waterloo, Desireh joined the team full-time in Cupertino. Although her work is based on what she studied in school, it continues to evolve, pushing the technology to create new experiences. Today, she’s able to balance the challenges of being a mom with the challenges of being a hardware engineer working on the next generation of Apple products. And ever since her internship, her favorite things about working here remain the same.
- “It feels good to know that our team’s iPhone work helps millions of people talk with family and friends, but it’s the collaboration and respect that energize me every day. Colleagues ask me questions, I ask them questions, and together, we have answers.”

I worked on some of Apple’s newest products, so my contributions really meant something.
