My work stems from a desire to envision and facilitate powerful ways of knowing and engaging with the world through use of computational media, interactive technologies, and data. I often work with location based media and technologies, maps and data visualizations, and occasionally dabble on experimental audio-visual projects. My work has been exhibited at international festivals including ARCO MediaLabMadrid, Ars Electronica, Conflux, MUKHA, and The Centre for Contemporary Image in Geneva.
I previously cofounded Timescape.io, was a Ford/MDF design & technology fellow at Global Voices, led design initiatives at Ushahidi and Yahoo – where I was also part of the design innovation team at Yahoo Brickhouse – an early design and technology incubator. I’m a visiting faculty at Srishti School of Design where I teach courses at the intersections of design, media arts, technology and social justice. I am a graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU, and Srishti School of Design and Technology, Bangalore.
