Here are my Curriculum Vitae and Resume

Bio: Dipto Das is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Information Science at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dipto has two MS degrees, one in Information Science from the University of Colorado Boulder and the other in Computer Science from Missouri State University, and a BSEngg in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

He is interested in human-computer interaction and social computing. In his doctoral research, he studies how sociotechnical systems support and impede the identity expression of colonially marginalized and indigenous communities and how we can decolonize computing systems. As a mixed-method researcher, he uses both qualitative (e.g., trace ethnography, interviews) and quantitative (e.g., machine learning, surveys, statistics) approaches to answer questions that challenge the status quo of computer science. Dipto's works often draw on critical theories (e.g., postcolonial, decolonial, feminist) while contributing to the conversations on race and technology, inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility. His works have appeared at venues like CHI, CSCW, and ICTD.

Out of academic works, Dipto enjoys fiction, movies, music, cooking, board games, and nature photography and takes a deep interest in learning about cultures around the world.
