Prajish Prasad
Graduate Student
Interdisciplinary Program in Educational Technology
IIT Bombay

I am a fifth year graduate student at the Interdisciplinary Program in Educational Technology. My advisor is Prof. Sridhar Iyer. My research involves improving teaching and learning of software design comprehension skills.
I have developed a technology enhanced learning environment VeriSIM, which helps learners understand software design diagrams like class diagrams and sequence diagrams. You can access VeriSIM here.

More info about VeriSIM can be found here.

I am part of the Computing Education Research group at EdTech IIT Bombay. Check out this blog post for an overview of our reseach and outreach efforts.
