I am a Collaboration Researcher at GE Global Research in San Ramon, CA. I'm part of the Software Center of Excellence where GE is pioneering the Industrial Internet. Some research areas I'm working on at GE are mobile collaboration, expert recommendation, wearables in healthcare, and human-machine collaboration. Some of my work was covered in this news article and this blog post.
In the past, I was an NSF Computing Innovation Fellow at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) where I studied social computing and social search. I also interned at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA in areas of collaborative search and sensemaking.
I received my Ph.D. from the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University. My Ph.D. dissertation examined collaborative information seeking and sensemaking in two domains - healthcare and Web search. I completed my Bachelors in Computer Sciences and Engineering at the Birla Institute of Technology in India.
I am passionate about human-computer interaction (HCI)/user experience, computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), social computing, social search, and social mobile applications.
In my spare time I love to cook and explore the outdoors.
