I'm Krithik

I'm a first-year Ph.D. student in Creative Technology and Design (CTD) at the ATLAS Institute, University of Colorado Boulder, where I am advised by Prof. Ellen Do and Prof. Michael Rivera. I am passionate about increasing the impact of technology among marginalized communities of people with disabilities, the elderly, and resource poor environments. I want to rethink how we use and create with computers to develop intuitive and low-cost modalities of human-computer interaction that enable more people to explore their creativity through technology.

I received my B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University in May 2022, where I had worked with Prof. Cindy Hsin-Liu Kao and Prof. Jay Yoon to develop an understanding of human-centered design, and with Prof. Christopher Batten to build my technical foundation in computer systems.
