Shivaang Sharma is a PhD student at the UCL School of Management, Research Group of Strategy & Entrepreneurship. His motivation has its roots in a life of living in conflict zones and in working for pro-social organizations. He continues to work alongside and consult for organizations such as UN-OCHA (Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs) and WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature).

His research program examines collaborative intelligent systems that address discriminations experienced by vulnerable social groups. In this research, he examines the promises and perils of Human-AI teams in humanitarian crises contexts. And, how organizations make sense of, navigate, and challenge discriminatory institutional regimes.

He is actively building a global knowledge sharing community around demystifying humanitarian technologies, workflows of tech-assisted collaborative organzations in crises contexts, and conducts workshops and podcasts on these topics.   

Prior to joining UCL, Shivaang worked as a freelance conflict zone photographer on various projects (WWF-India, New York Times) and co-founded an ecotourism venture in India. He completed his MSc. Management (distinction) at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
