I am an Associate Professor at the School of Information at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Prior to this I was a Senior Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research India, where I was part of the Technology for Emerging Markets group.

My recent work has been on the use of social media in mainstream politics, and on misinformation networks online. I started the Social Media and Society group at Microsoft Research, and also started and organized the Social Media and Society in India symposium at Michigan.

I am part of the Michigan ICTD group. In the past, I’ve been a visiting scholar at the Research for Advanced Science and Technology at University of Tokyo in 2013, and at the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law at Stanford University in 2015.
