Hello there !

I am Pranjal Borah,

a Faculty Associate at the SoLA, IIT Jodhpur, India.

My research interests include Human-computer Interaction (HCI), Inclusive Design, and Machine Learning (ML).


I hold a B.Tech degree in Computer Science and Engineering and an M.Tech degree specializing in Artificial Intelligence. My PhD thesis titled “Design and Evaluation of Naamya” focuses on designing accessible gesture-based interactions for flexible smartphones to draw primitive geometric shapes by users with blindness or low vision. With over seven years of experience as an academic researcher, I have actively contributed to various research areas, including Interaction Techniques, Tangible and Haptic Interfaces, Inclusive Design, and Machine Learning. Beyond research, I find happiness in painting, sculpting, photography, and gardening.
