I am a researcher with interests spanning over topics of history and politics of informatics in India, new media and technology studies, and data infrastructures and economies. I am also keenly interested in computational techniques in arts, humanities, and social research, and emerging methodological questions.
I am associated with the Centre for Internet and Society, where I engage with policy and implementation works related to open data in particular and openness in general, and also lead the Researchers at Work (RAW) programme.
I studied economics in Visva-Bharati, Shantiniketan, and in Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Completing my studies, I have variously worked on topics of urban development, information technology in governance, data visualisation, and early electronic governance in India with MOD Institute, Azim Premji University, and the Sarai programme at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies.
I am a member of DataMeet.
