Ph.D. Candidate

University of California, Berkeley

Jun 2004 - Dec 2010

My dissertation was in the area of human-computer interaction. Drawing from psychological theories of persuasion, I designed innovative applications using mobile phones that motivate rural low-skilled community health workers to be more effective at persuading pregnant and postnatal women to utilize health services. I conducted qualitative field research (interviews, focus groups, workshops) in rural Orissa for needs assessment, designed and implemented quantitative studies for comparing the persuasive power of various interface features, engaged potential users in iterative design and deployed and evaluated mobile prototypes.
