Shubhangi Gupta

I am a Ph.D. student in Digital Media at Georgia Tech, advised by Dr. Nassim Parvin.

I use qualitative research methods to critically examine the role of data in the design and use of emerging technology. Presently, I am assessing the assumptions embedded in emerging technologies designed for safe mobility in India. Additionally, I aim to highlight the social inequalities these assumptions may perpetuate.
