Welcome to my homepage. I am Abhishek Shrivastava, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Design (DoD) at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. In addition, I am actively associated with the Center for Linguistic Science and Technology (CLST) at IIT Guwahati.

My research interests include Voice User Interfaces (VUIs), Investigating Design Strategies for Users with varying Tech-readiness, Multimodal and Assistive User Interfaces.

At the Institute, I conduct courses for both the bachelors' and masters' students of Design on different aspects of Interaction and Interactive Media Design. Lately I have also been recognized as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in Interaction Design with an Online NPTEL course on Interaction Design.
