Aakar Gupta

I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I am advised by Prof. Ravin Balakrishnan. My areas of interest are Mobile Computing, Crowdsourcing and Technologies for Emerging Markets.

I did my Master's thesis in collaboration with Dr. Bill Thies and Dr. Ed Cutrell at Microsoft Research India, building and evaluating a mobile crowdsourcing platform for human computation tasks. The project was featured on MIT Technology Review. Feel free to drop me a line if you find this stuff interesting!
