Rama Varanasi

DLI Doctoral Fellow

I am a doctoral candidate in the Information Science department at Cornell University. ​ My research falls in the intersection of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Science (CS), and Development Sociology. I study and design technologies that minimize inequities in digital labor, especially for underserved communities. I take a mixed-methods approach with an aim to translate my research insights into impactful technological solutions. You can read my work in leading conferences, including CHI, CSCW, ICTD, & COMPASS. All of my research has been generously funded by Engaged, Einaudi, and Mozilla grants. I also actively mentor under-represented students and provide research consultations for leading non-profits.
