I design tools to help make better public policy, using a complex adaptive systems lens. My work spans across areas ranging from inequality, transport, energy, disaster management, urban planning, governance to social protection. I have academic publications based on my work in these areas and it has been covered in the media.

In 2012, I co-founded Fields of View, a non-profit research group in India to create these tools. I was elected as an Ashoka Fellow in 2018 for my work in developing tools and methods to allow stakeholders to collaboratively create public policy. I teach courses upon request in the areas of Tools for Participation in Public Policy, Games as Research Tools, and Data in Public Policy.

I maintain a list of books on Bangalore, mail postcards with poems that seem appropriate for the times we live in, collect handmade fountain pens, practice Esperanto, and I am a certified tea taster.

While I have been maintaining an online presence on this site since 2009, I have recently started using KeyOxide as a comprehensive identity management system.
