Hello there! I am a final year PhD candidate at the Interactive Intelligence group at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft),  the Netherlands, working with my advisor Dr. Myrthe Tielman and promotor Prof. Catholijn Jonker.  Prior to joining PhD, I completed my Masters in Media Informatics from RWTH Aachen University, Germany, where I worked with my advisors Prof. Jan Borchers and Prof. Marianna Obrist  (UCL, London).
My research interests are at the intersection of Human Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence, and Computational Social Science, and their application in domains such as AI enabled personal assistance and policymaking.  In my PhD, my main focus is on designing for appropriate trust in human-AI interaction.  I am building AI agents that can guide humans to appropriately trust AI and augment human agency.  To do this, I combine a formal and a social lens with human-centered design, values and norms to study trust.

My master's program and master thesis research were generously supported by Dr. Jost Henkel Stiftung Scholarship from Henkel and Deutschlandstipendium from RWTH Education fund. I have also worked with industry collaborators during internships at Siemens ResearchMazda, and Grohe with my advisors VeeraVenkata (Vijay) Atmakuri (Siemens), Tim Merforth (Mazda), and Markus Ehehalt (Grohe).
