Hello! I am a first year PhD student in Human Computer Interaction at Cornell University. I work with Dr. Tapan Parikh and Dr. Nicola Dell. My primary interests lie in the areas of education and development contexts (ICT4D). In particular, I try to understand ways in which various communities use technologies for achieving their goals and design impactful solutions.

Previously, I had the opportunity to work with Dr. John M. Carroll and Dr. Marcela Borge as a master’s student. Prior to that, I worked as a user experience designer at Standard & Poor’s.
