I am a researcher working at the intersection of technology, policy and global development. I am interested in the implications of machine learning and predictive algorithms, loosely called AI, on development imperatives. My more recent research looked at the deployment of behavioural credit scoring algorithms towards financial inclusion goals in India.
I am the current house-elf at Tattle, a project I co-founded with Denny George. Tattle was one of the seven winners of the AI and the News Open Challenge organized by the AI Ethics Initiative. Ocassionally, you'll find me stealing time and rummaging through all the data Tattle collects.
As a practitioner, I have worked on ICTD and Data driven development projects with non-profits and tech companies in Asia and the United States.
