Bio
I completed my Ph.D in Summer 2011 from the Computer Science department at Stanford. You can watch my thesis defense here, and read my dissertation at the link below. I am now working full time on Awaaz.De, a company I co-founded with Tapan Parikh. In grad school, I worked in the HCI Group and was advised by Scott Klemmer and Tapan Parikh (at the UC Berkeley iSchool). Earlier, I worked at various places in industry for a couple of years, most recently at a startup called Searchforce. Before that, I had some of the best times of my life studying Computer Science and Business Administration at UC Berkeley. I'm also generally passionate about service, both globally and locally. If you are interested in finding volunteer opportunities in the Bay Area, or have served with a cool organization yourself, send me an email... I'd love to exchange notes!
