I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute(WPI). I primarily work with Professor Neil Heffernan at the ASSISTments lab. My work revolves around the effective utilization of computers to facilitate learning.
As a researcher, I am interested in exploring the various aspects of HCI, learning science, and statistics. My current research revolves around several teacher-facing components of Computer Aided Learning Platforms, such as classroom orchestration tools and teaching augmentation modalities. I explore the overall effectiveness of these classroom interventions and their effects on teacher behavior and their students' performance in real-time.
As an engineer, I am interested in designing systems that facilitate teachers' classroom performance at scale. Before joining the ASSISTments lab, I worked as a software engineer at a non-profit, Open Learning Exchange Nepal(OLE Nepal). At OLE Nepal, I led the E-Paath project and worked with the One Laptop Per Child initiative and Sugar labs as part of the development and deployment of E-Paath.
