Aparna Lalingkar

I am postdoctorate research fellow at Gooru Labs in Web Science Labs. Before joining Gooru Labs, I was a postdoctorate research fellow at University of Haifa, Israel under the fellowship of Planning and Budgeting Commission of Israeli Higher Education.

I am a mathematician and educational technologist with PhD in Information Technology. For my PhD I had proposed an ontology for teaching problem solving in mathematics. My research interest are: application of Information Technology to Education specifically mathematics and science education, application of semantic web technology to education, ontological engineering and management, online assessment, automation of applications, educational technology and management.

I have an MPhil in math education research from Cambridge University, UK. I have received several academic fellowships and awards including HP Labs fellowship for PhD, DFID & CCT fellowship fr MPhil.

I have wide range of teaching and work experience. I have taught to tribal students as well as intellectually gifted students. I have also taught graduate level and master’s level students. During PhD at IIITB, I have mentored MTech students for some projects.

I am also interested in social work, Indian culture and ancient Indian knowledge. I have worked as a Sevavrati for Vivekanand Kendra in the North Eastern region of India. I was joint secretary for Vivekanand Kendra Pune and during my association with VK, I have organized youth camps, personality development camps, conducted workshops and delivered lectures on life and work of Swami Vivekananda. I am a voracious reader in both Marathi and English and write regularly blog articles in Marathi and some times in English.
