Yadav


Hi, I am completing my PhD from IIIT-Delhi,, India, Computer Science Department. My advisor is Dr. Pushpendra Singh. I am currently in the job market; looking for a postdoc position.

My research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction and Information and Communication Technologies for Development that focus on problems of social good, empowerment, health, and education. Particularly, I am inclined to work for women and marginalized populations in the developing world.

My PhD research falls in the space of maternal and child health where I focused on improving training opportunities for frontline health workers in rural India - the ASHAs ()village women turned into health workers) - through mobile-learning solutions. The work is placed in a setting where women have lagged behind in technology access, education, and decision-making due to surrounding complex, conservative, and patriarchal society, but nevertheless these women are slowly and steadily gaining the pace to grow (thanks to the efforts of so many activists around the world).  In my research, I design, develop, and field deploy my mobile solutions to understand user needs, design requirements, and future research direction.
