I am a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan School of Information. Prior to this position, I was an ICTD Expert in Residence at the ATLAS Institute, University of Colorado Boulder. I received a Masters in Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICTD) from the University of Colorado Boulder on a Fulbright Scholarship.
My work lies at the intersection of technology and social impact, with a particular focus on designing technologies to improve the lives of women and children in low-income communities. Previously, I’ve focused on creating digital technologies to improve vaccine service delivery in Pakistan, and engaging male partners in pregnancy and childcare. My recent work focuses on the creation and use of digital safe spaces as a means to provide much needed peer-support and empower women in patriarchal countries. I specialize in participatory design, and user experience (UX) research.
