Gobi D

Hi I'm Gobi, a software engineer, HCI / ICT4D researcher, AI / ML engineer, engineering manager, startup consultant, and traveler (36 countries, 40 states, and counting). I raced through Stanford CS in two years (seven quarters) to be a digital nomad for two years. Then I did my masters in HCI+AI at Stanford. I have a background in CS Education through my PhD research at Northwestern. I engage in endeavors inspired by my research and travels (ask me how). I also founded LD Talent.
