Rajat is a Senior Officer - Research & Advocacy at the Digital Empowerment Foundation. He works on sifting through the socio-economic, cultural, technological and ethical questions surrounding the application of ICT4D in an equitable and socially responsible manner. A tea aficionado and incorrigible nerd, he identifies himself as a child of the Internet and would probably have a panic attack if his devices failed him. Rajat’s passion is understanding real world social networks and interactions using the tools of social and data science. His favourite quote is: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive” - Elbert Hubbar.
