About Me

I am a maker, of learning experiences, circuits and code. I love learning, and want to create inquiry-driven, personally meaningful learning experiences for all. I am an engineer and an educator - a designer, facilitator and researcher! I have worked in diverse educational contexts, both formal and informal and look forward to explore, combine and create new ones!

My Skills



I have built using various media:  circuits (arduinos to VLSI chips), code (app inventor to deployed python code), mechanics (3D prints to humanoid robot parts).


Design and Facilitation of Learning experiences

I have worked in diverse settings: K-12 school, underserved school, science museum and walking tours.  Over time, I have learnt the importance of creating expressive possibilities and opportunities for learners to make the experience their own.


Research methodology

I have practiced complete research cycles in multiple domains: electronics in university setting, electronics in a corporate setting, education in a teacher preparation setting, education in a school innovation lab setting. This has helped me assimilate various methods into my toolkit and given me a wholesome perspective.

“In many schools today, the phrase "computer-aided instruction" means making the computer teach the child. One might say the computer is being used to program the child. In my vision, the child programs the computer and, in doing so, both acquires a sense of mastery over a piece of the most modern and powerful technology and establishes an intimate contact with some of the deepest ideas from science, from mathematics, and from the art of intellectual model building.”

― Seymour Papert
