Deepika

Yadav

PhD Candidate in Computer Science

Hi, I am a final year PhD student in IIIT Delhi, advised by Dr. Pushpendra Singh. My research interests are in the areas of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and global development. In my PhD research work, I have focused on investigating technology based solutions for improving community education on maternal and child health in rural India. I have designed, developed, and evaluated mobile-based applications for providing supplementary training platforms for community health workers and educating women on topics such as breast-feeding and post-natal care. The corresponding field testing and deployments are conducted with collaboration of Non-profit and government organizations in north-India.

Till now, my focus areas has been under-resource settings and therefore have worked on developing low-cost and contextualized designs  using technologies such as IVR and android-applications. In recent times, I have also started investigating the use of conversational agents and trying to understand its potential in breastfeeding education in the light of limited experts and counselling support.

 

One of my research project---Sangoshthi, a mobile-based training platform form for ASHAs, is funded by Bill & Melinda Gates foundation and is being implemented on scale in the regions of Northern India with the collaboration of government bodies.

Currently, I am looking for a post-doctoral position.
