Hello! I'm Devesh. 

PhD Student, Center for Work, Technology and Organization

Department of Management Science and Engineering

Stanford University

I study how technology shapes - and is shaped by - the ways in which we organize work. I'm particularly interested in the promise of 'augmenting' work with AI, and in sketching viable pathways toward futures of work where workers can secure economic mobility, job security, and dignity.

I'm working towards a PhD at Stanford University's Department of Management Science & Engineering, supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship. Before this, I worked in Singapore at the NUS Business School and the Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities, where I studied various topics related to the future of work, AI fairness and trustworthiness, and algorithmic management. I hold an M.A. in Philosophy, and a B.Eng. (Hons.) in Mechanical Engineering, both from the National University of Singapore.

I primarily use qualitative/ethnographic methods, and work at intersections of organization studies, sociology of work, and science & technology studies. My prior research has been published in interdisciplinary AI ethics venues including ACM FAccT, Philosophy & Technology, Minds & Machines, and the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction.

Get in touch! I'd love to hear more about your research, and tell you more about mine.
