About Me
About Me

I’m a lawyer and researcher who investigates the consequences of integrating artificial intelligence (AI) systems in societies. 

I currently work as Senior Programme Officer at ARTICLE 19, where I lead research and engagement on the human rights implications of machine learning. I’m also an affiliate researcher at Carnegie India, where I analyse law enforcement use of emerging technologies in India. In the past, I have collaborated with DATACTIVE at the University of Amsterdam, Privacy International, among others. I am part of the Steering Committee at RealML, and a member of the Expert Group on Governance of Data and AI at United Nations Global Pulse.

My work has been cited by the Supreme Court of India in a seminal ruling on the Right to Privacy, the United Kingdom House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, among others. I have been interviewed by the BBC, Economic Times, CNN-News18, and other publications.

Beyond work, I am a classically trained musician (soon, you can find some of my music on this site) and a strong believer in the healing powers of chai. 

I’m based in Bangalore, India.
