Hi! I am an engineer turned journalist turned sociologist, with an expertise on ethnographically studying digital policing. I am specially interested in the use of predictive/algorithmic systems in policing. Other areas that draw my attention are online caste hate speech, the ever-expanding reach of AI, and platform governance.
I am currently working on a three-year project studying digital policing in India, with a special focus on their use of facial recognition systems, funded by the Oslo Metropolitan University and Norwegian Research Council https://www.oslomet.no/en/research/research-projects/agopol.
