Sukeshini Grandhi, Ph.D., M.B.A.

I am a research associate at the Natural Media and Engineering project focusing on gesture use in the design of technology. I am  interested in understanding the use of gestures in social and  organizational work processes in technology mediated  communication and how this understanding can inform the design of  communication technology. 

I graduated from the Department of Information Systems, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and was a member of the SmartCampus Group headed by my advisor Dr. Quentin Jones. As part of my doctoral thesis I explored ways to support interruption management in mobile phone communication.
