My research area broadly focuses on the fairness and bias issues in Recommender Systems. I am currently working on understanding and comparing several fair ranking metrics. I am also focusing on the problem of early childhood exposure of gender stereotypes through search and recommendations concerning the identification and measurement issues. I am an active member of the People and Information Research Team (PIReT) at Boise State University supervised by Dr. Michael Ekstrand and Dr. Sole Pera.
