I am fascinated by technology and social change. I aspire to be a multi-disciplinary technologist, trying to develop my understanding of how we use, design and work with technologies in our lives. I have worked/lived in the (grassroots) development sector in flood zone of India-Nepal border (Indian side) in the past and now I try to develop my understanding of dignity and accountability. On this personal blog I discuss my ideas and personal opinions on things that interest me.
In some of my talks, I draw upon my experience and the following key skills: Design Thinking, Human-Centered Design, Human-Technology Relations, User Experience Design, Ethnography, Qualitative Methods, Cultural Sensitivity, Cross Cultural Communication & Collaboration, Community Engagement, Empathy, Care for the other, Disaster Risk Reduction, Community Based Interventions, Livelihoods, Women Empowerment & Gender aspects, Appropriate Technology.
You can take a look at my online CV here, the list of my talks, projects and publications to understand my work. If you have anything interesting that we could work together on, feel free to drop me a line.
I like to look at the things that do not get attention.
