Noopur is a PhD student in Informatics at UC Irvine. Her current research focuses on human labor within ridehailing applications, specifically with regard to how workers make sense of their work in order to succeed at it. In another project, Noopur studies early South Asian innovation work in Silicon Valley. As a part of this project, she is collecting oral histories of South Asian technologists, entrepreneurs and others. She is being advised on both projects by Prof. Paul Dourish.
