Hello! Welcome to my website!
I am a doctoral candidate and critical computer science scholar in the Educational Psychology and Educational Technology department. I take culturally responsive and intersectional feminist lenses in addressing gendered, sexual, and racial injustices and inequities in STEM fields, particularly computer science education. This approach is evident in dissertation research, where I explore computer science faculty’s beliefs on using a culturally responsive computing approach and leveraging community-based resources in teaching CS courses at the undergraduate level. As a university teacher educator, I draw heavily from my experience in university and college settings in US and India. My work is influenced by my own experiences as an Indian woman computer scientist and the masculine culture that is prevalent in the computer sciences across the globe. I am passionate about creative arts and I bring this creative outlook into my work in science education as a creative socio-cultural process of sense-making.
I look forward to exchanging views and new perspectives on STEM education.
