Dibyendu Mishra


Hi! I am a PhD Student in the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science where I research socio-technical systems and their governance. I am motivated by issues of social justice and focus my inquiries on public sector algorithms and social media. My current interests include: (a) organisational and social dynamics of realising ethical principles in AI development and (b) public accountability of algorithmic systems.

In the past, I was a Data Scientist at the Ministry of Rural Development (Govt. of India) where I studied and designed in-situ algorithmic systems by interfacing with administrators and beneficiaries alike, to improve service delivery of government welfare programs. Prior to that, I worked with Joyojeet Pal at Microsoft Research India on political polarisation, crisis informatics, and disinformation on social media. I received my Bachelors in Computer Science from Ashoka University in India.
