Undergraduate in Computer Science and Engineering at IIIT Delhi
Currently final year undergrad, majoring in Computer Science and Engineering. I am an undergraduate researcher at Human-Machine Interaction Lab at IIIT Delhi, where I am being advised by Dr. Jainendra Shukla. I am broadly interested in Marginalized and Under-resourced Communities, ICT4D, Well-Being and Child-Robot Interaction. I work on a broad range of research projects and use mixed-method approaches in my studies.
Most interesting project that I am currently working on is "Design for the Well-Being of LBGTQIA+ University Students" as my Bachelor's Thesis. I am being advised by Dr. Venkata Ratnadeep Suri and Dr. Jainendra Shukla.
