Taneea S Agrawaal



I'm looking for HCI internships for Summer, 2023! Please reach out if you're recruiting!

I'm a second-year PhD student in Computer Science, co-supervised by Robert Soden and Steve Easterbrook. My current research focuses on Human-Centered Design and Human Computer Interaction.
Themes associated with my current work are Human Computer Interaction, Information Visualization, Climate Change/Mitigation/Adaptation, Digital Interaction and Natural Language Processing.

Broadly, my research interests lie in mixed-methods Human-Computer Interaction at the intersection of Computer Science and Climate Science and Sustainability. I am interested in designing and building creative tools specifically for underrepresented groups which stems from a deep understanding of design, social and information science.

I'm always looking for more opportunities and contexts to build interactive tools in ill-defined, complex research areas. I'm open to intersectional collaborations, please feel free to reach out if you're interested in talking about research!
