Hi! I'm Karthik,
Engineer, Designer and Researcher based out of Amsterdam, NL


I currently work with the Distributed & Interactive systems (DIS) research group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI)


I hold a master's degree in Industrial Design Engineering from Delft University of Technology 

I'm also part of the AI Media Democracy lab, 

where I work on the European Lighthouse  on 

Secure and Safe AI (ELSA) project


My research interests broadly encompass the topics of immersive media, experimental psychology, Social XR, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation systems. 

With a solid foundation in Engineering and Industrial Design, combined with technical experience in industry, I aim to leverage my skillset in human-centered design of technology, grounded in philosophical contemplation, to contribute towards the ethical implementation of AI and future intelligent systems within society.
