Assistant Professor – Computer Science
His doctoral thesis explored the potential role of digital media in the classroom. He plans to continue research looking at how new developments in digital media and artificial intelligence might fundamentally shape our cognitive and social structures. This would entail not only deep technical understanding of these potential changes, but also a broader sociological and policy perspective on how they could enable more equitable but diversified systems, with the education system being a prime example.
Other research interests include exploring the nature of the self, specifically challenges to the modernist ideal of the individual, rational, monadic, controlling self. With the cognitive and institutional changes that digital media and artificial intelligence are expected to bring, he is interested in asking how human minds, social institutions, our planetary ecology and our very ‘selves’ might become-anew in the digital era.
In his spare time, Prateek enjoys reading, playing sports and video games, learning the piano, and writing poetry.
