Hello!
I am Sharadhi, a Project Researcher at the Crowd Computing Group, Centre for Ubiquitous Computing, University of Oulu, Finland. My research centres at the intersection of Human Factors and Artificial Intelligence where I employ and investigate AI-based decision making on technologies humans interact with.

Prior to my current role, I was a Doctoral Researcher at the Intelligent Agent, Interaction and Modeling Lab at Bar-Ilan University, Israel under the supervision of Prof. Sarit Kraus. My thesis was on ‘Human Consideration in Analysis and Algorithms for Mechanism Design’ where I focused on Artificial Intelligence incorporating human factors which involves theoretical research i.e. agent-based modeling of interactive domains and experimental research conducted with human participants.

I am intrigued by human behavior and I am interested in using empirical insights from human behavior to improve computational systems.

My curiosity on human behavior has also resulted in a lot of introspection. Hence, apart from my research you'll find me constantly trying to optimize my daily errands, cooking and penning down my thoughts in an imaginary blog and contemplating about life with my husband Vinayaka.
