Ananya Gupta, Ricoh Scholar

“During my first year pursuing my doctorate at Clemson, I have found my passion in work that will provide better technology-based services that are more secure, trustworthy and accessible, especially to poor and middle-class people worldwide. Being recognized as a Ricoh Scholar will allow me to focus on my study and research without additional financial stress. I am beyond grateful for Dr. Knijnenburg’s guidance, Ricoh’s commitment to students from diverse backgrounds and this life-changing fellowship, all of which are helping me achieve my academic and future career goals.”

Ricoh Scholar, Ananya Gupta, received her bachelor’s in Computer Science from Claflin University and is currently a second-year doctoral student in Human-Centered Computing at Clemson.

Dr. Bart Knijnenburg

“Ananya’s work on making the ways we interact online more accessible and more secure is exciting, and it’s exactly the kind of thing we want to support with the Ricoh Scholars program. Ananya has become part of the Humans and Technology Lab (, a diverse lab of young scholars from all over the world who are internationally recognized for their work in privacy and adaptive decision support systems. Her participation in the lab paired with her work in data privacy and her project streamlining and improving translation of social media posts into different languages has prepared Ananya to make a real difference. With Ricoh’s help, Ananya can take these early steps with more confidence and financial security.”
