Brief Bio

I’m a PhD student at University of California, Santa Cruz working towards research in Information and Communication Technology for Development and Human Computer Interaction. My particular interest is towards developing ICTs that can help resolve problems in developing regions around the world. Coming from India, a developing country, I have seen the social and economic environment around and I understand how many problems exist in our community. If I can make any substantial contribution towards development in these regions, I’ll feel satisfied. With my personal projects being in the area of development in Agriculture, along with contributions towards active projects on health and community media, I hope to bring positive change in the lives of millions of people facing difficult challenges in developing countries.
