Hi! I'm Dibyendu


I am a data scientist and researcher working broadly in the area of Information & Communication Technologies and Development(ICTD) and Human Computer Interaction(HCI). I motivated by issues of social justice and have focused my inquiries on public sector algorithms and social networks.

At present, I am a Data Scientist with the Ministry of Rural Development (Govt. of India) where I study and design in-situ algorithmic systems using participatory methods to improve service delivery for underserved populations living in rural India. Specifically, I identify bias in resource allocation, exclusion of marginalized populations, and anomalous behavior in service delivery, and build decision aid systems for administrators for fairer and inclusive outcomes. A large part of my work also involves thinking about the political economy in which such technology operates and making them more explainable, which I am always excited to talk about!

My previous work at Microsoft Research India with Prof. Joyojeet Pal focused on political polarisation, crisis informatics, and disinformation on social media using computational methods. The work has been shared through publications (at CSCW, COMPASS, ICWSM, SMSociety, HICCS, etc), media articles, and blog posts.
