I am an ARC DECRA Fellow and Senior Lecturer in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, at the University of Queensland, Australia. I lead the Compassion Lab research group. Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), my research focuses on ‘Designing for Underserved Communities’. I have ongoing projects associated with economically struggling older adults, women in crisis situations, refugees and asylum seekers, and people from the developing nations. I have a PhD in Human Computer Interaction from University of Twente, the Netherlands; a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Lancaster University, UK; and an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Gujarat University, India.

Previously, I was a Research Scientist (2012-2013) at ABB Corporate Research  in Bangalore, India. Before joining ABB, I was a Post-Doc researcher (2011-2012) at the Human Media Interaction group of University of Twente, the Netherlands. While being a Post-Doc, I had spent half a year at the Nokia Research Center, Helsinki, in the summer of 2011. From 2005 to 2009, I worked as an intern at Elsevier ScienceSatama Interactive (now LBi Lost Boys) and Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI) group of DFKI, Saarbrücken, Germany.
