Posted March 31, 2021

The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs is proud to announce that assistant professor Neha Kumar just received tenure. She joined the Nunn School in 2015 with a joint appointment in the School of Interactive Computing, and has been promoted to associate professor. 

Kumar’s  research lies at the intersection of human-centered computing and global development. She uses a background in computer science, design, and ethnography to study emerging technology practices of marginalized users in resource-challenged communities, and to leverage this understanding towards the design and deployment of appropriate technology- and process-based solutions. 

Kumar’s work contributes towards scholarship on mobile, social, and visual media practices and applies this research to design appropriate and contextually-relevant health and education interventions for marginalized communities, mainly in South Asia.

Neha Kumar came to Georgia Tech after completing a doctorate at the School of Information at the University of California, Berkley, where she specialized in human-centered computing and global development

Kudos to Neha on achieving this professional milestone!
