I am an Assistant Professor at the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science. My research focuses on designing, building, and evaluating appropriate computing systems for underserved communities worldwide. This encompasses:
My research spans several disciplinary boundaries, such as computer science, information science, global health, agriculture, and others. At Cornell, I am a member of the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability, Digital Life Initiative, Cornell Center for Health Equity, and Cornell Center for Social Sciences.
My research is generously supported by Microsoft, Google, Facebook, USAID, PATH, Humanity United, and others. My work has transitioned into large-scale, real-world products that have reached an estimated 220,000 people in Africa and South Asia.
Before Cornell, I completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, where my dissertation was recognized with the William Chan Memorial Dissertation Award and the WAGS/ProQuest Innovation in Technology Award.
