Position at Institute of ICT, Ahemedabad University:
As a Project Coordinator, Ashis is responsible for envisioning and managing all activities related to establishing a new school for Information Communication and Technology (ICT) for Ahmedabad University, Gujarat, India. Where she is effectively relooking at the engineering education and aims to build a high quality research driven multidisciplinary platform for faculty and students to explore the real world problems in order to leverage and innovate ICT solutions that have societal and industrial impact.
Ashis is currently busy with identifying and developing position strategies, making policies, setting up infrastructure and labs, hiring, PR, tie ups with industries and universities and developing course curriculum. Ashis is the convenor of the Advisory committee which has been established to support the shaping of the Institute of ICT.
Position at Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands:
Ashis is a research fellow with Technical University of Delft, The Netherland.
For over the past decade Ashis has been involved in researching consulting and teaching, in the area of Human computer Interaction with reputed universities, companies and research labs across the globe. Ashis advocates establishing the role of HCI design in new product and technology development towards generating user centered solutions and works also on technology transfer issues to application sectors such as Healthcare, E- Governance, E-education. Her research/teaching/Consulting competencies include leading collaborative technology development between multidisciplinary teams, cognitive workflow integration in information systems, design for complex workspace, system design, UI/ information visualization/architecture, and decision support. She is especially interested in the design and development of healthcare devices.
Ashis was a Doctoral researcher at Industrial Design Engineering, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Where Ashis as a Marie Curie Fellow (FP6) received her doctorate in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in a European Union funded research project in a Pan European network called Augmenting Reality in Surgery. Her thesis was titled 'Workflow Driven Decision Support Systems: A case of an intra-operative visualization system for surgeons'. She has master's degree with Cuma Laude, from the Industrial Design Center, IIT Bombay, India. She has worked and consulted for companies such as SAP AG, Germany, NCR Scotland, MTNL-India, Samsung-Korea , Phillips healthcare, Netherlands. She has published in journals and conferences such as design studies, biomedical informatics, American medical informatics, IEEE, human decision making and control, computer assisted radiological imaging and is a reviewer of several scientific journal and conferences.
