I’m a Ph.D Student @ Harvard working with Prof. Elena Glassman at Glassman Lab. I work in the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Programming Languages.

Prior to this, I was a Master’s Student @ UCSD, where I worked with Prof. Philip Guo at the UCSD Design Lab. I was also fortunate to work in Microsoft Research India as a Research Fellow for two years, where I worked on multitude of projects.

For more details on my current work, please visit my projects page. I also indulge deeply in Art. I collaborate in The Onion Art Project and maintain two personal blogs : Broken Typewriter and Snippets.
