I am an assistant professor in the Interdisciplinary Program in Educational Technology at IIT Bombay. I joined the department in July, 2017. Prior to that, my academic career has seen two distinct epochs. The first one was that of an earth scientist, which culminated in a PhD from University of California, San Diego, in 2012. Since then I have moved onto technology and education during my two postdoctoral stints at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, and University of Colorado, Boulder. 

I continue to be inspired by the natural and physical sciences as I try to understand learning processes in STEM disciplines. I am always interested in new tools, techniques and questions to ponder upon. So if you are interested in my research please write to me at rmitra [a t] iitb.ac.in
