Hi, I am Anup.

I'm a PhD student at the University of Chicago working with Dr. Ken Nakagaki. I'm currently exploring my interests in tangible interaction, fabrication and interactive art. My research is fueled by my rage towards the current state of the attention economy.

When I'm not writing website bios, I'm probably reading, driving a racing sim, hanging off an indoor boulder, or learning a new musical instrument. I've thoroughly excused myself from social media (explanation above) so please feel free to reach out to me at anups [at] uchicago [dot] edu.
