Sucheta Ghosshal joins Human Centered Design and Engineering this winter as an assistant professor. Sucheta has spent the last four years working with grassroots social movements in the United States, both as a researcher and as an activist, building social computing technologies for activist groups and designing web platforms aligned with their social causes.
In her work, she focuses on the relationship between information communication technologies (ICTs) and social movement organizing using action research, studying movement communities and building digital tools. By examining how communities can form awareness, resistance, and accountability against technology-mediated systemic oppression, she develops commons-based d ICTs that hold designers of technology accountable.
