Devanuj studied Architecture at University of Roorkee (now IIT Roorkee) and Industrial Design at IIT Delhi. He also earned a PhD from the IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay. In the industry, as a researcher and developer, he dealt with Artificial Intelligence (AI). His current research attempts to find how to design digital artefacts, that are contextually meaningful, for the Emergent Users (or the Next Billion Users). In addition, he advises start-ups from the perspective of design-strategy and is active in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community.
