About Me


I am a PhD student studying Computer Science at Georgia Tech in the School of Interactive Computing. My advisors are Dr. Amy Bruckman and Dr. Eric Gilbert, and I am a member of the ELC Lab and Lab.

My research aims to inform the design of efficient and equitable content moderation systems. I have studied online harassment, moderation mechanisms and human-computer collaboration for content regulation on social media websites like Twitter and Reddit. My current work explores the tradeoffs of implementing transparency in content moderation systems.

Previously, I have done research internships at Microsoft Research, Airbnb and Inria. I have also worked as a software developer at Amazon and Future Group. I am an alum of the Big Data Analytics and Management Lab at UT Dallas led by Dr. Latifur Khan; and I obtained my B. Tech. from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Bombay).
