I am a recent graduate (Ed.M in Technology, Innovation, and Education) from Harvard University. Previously, I worked
in the software industry for twelve years after studying Computer Science and Engineering (B.E) at Rashtreeya
Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE), Bangalore.
For a brief period of time before pursuing my graduate studies, I worked with a former colleague/supervisor on a set of
initiatives related to learning technologies for his start-up. During this time, I also volunteered for Junior Achievement,
helping middle school and high school children in San Diego's public schools become financially literate through
the "Economics for Success" program.
In the recent times following my graduation, I have been gradually building on some of my Master's projects by
continuing a collaboration with my former classmates at MIT (from a course I took there) to submit a final paper for a
Demo/Poster at a conference in 2015, and presenting a paper and poster at a conference in Vienna to gain feedback for
a work-in-progress project. I also carried out investigations for a start-up company in the Bay area, focusing on
user-interactions and software affordances for a new technology, gaining valuable skills, albeit during a short
duration. I am interested in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and plan to pursue a research career in areas of HCI.
I am a Student Ambassador for the Graduate School of Education at Harvard (HGSE). If you would like to learn more
