Rajesh Veeraraghavan is currently a PhD student at the UC Berkeley School of Information, where he is exploring the relationship between information and socio economic development. Specifically, I am looking at Right to Information and its effect on the implementation of National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) in India.
He used to work as an associate researcher in the Technology for Emerging Markets Group at Microsoft Research India in Bangalore. Prior to this, I was a software developer at Microsoft in the US and a volunteer for Association for India’s Development for several years.
