Hi there! I am a fourth year Ph.D. candidate at the School of Information in the University of Michigan. My research lies at the intersection of Human Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing and Personal Health Informatics. Currently, I am researching how technology can continue to improve personal health management. More specifically, I am studying the use of personal health data by patients and clinicians to improve decision-making in the management of chronic health conditions using data visualizations and sense-making tools.
Prior to this, I completed a Masters in Informatics from the University of California, Irvine where I learned how to be an ethnographer. Even before that (in a past life), I worked as a software developer at Goldman Sachs after completing a bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT BHU, Varanasi, India. A true explorer at heart, I am passionate about posing questions that matter and finding answers to them.
