I am recruiting students interested in HCI, ICTD, and Accessibility research. Email me to know more!
I am (soon-to-be) an Assistant Professor at Cornell University and a Visiting Researcher at Microsoft Research. My research focuses on using computing to achieve social good of people in low-resource environments. This encompasses:
More broadly, my work lies at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), ICT & Development (ICTD), and Accessibility. Given the interdisciplinary nature of global development, my research spans several disciplinary boundaries, such as computer science, information science, global health, agriculture, disability studies, and others.
My research is generously supported by Microsoft, Facebook, USAID, PATH, Humanity United, Access Now, 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.
I recently completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, where I remain a Visiting Researcher in the ICTD Lab.
