Nanditha Narayanamoorthy (she/her) is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Information, Technology and Public Life (CITAP) at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Her work draws from a Humanities-based framework to understand the relationship between technology and democracy and rethink digital infrastructure and platform design, particularly for marginalized communities in the Global South.

As an interdisciplinary scholar at the intersection of Critical Digital Studies, Gender Studies, and Social Justice, her work investigates the role digital infrastructures play in centering vulnerable groups online.

She studies how racial, religious, gender, and caste minorities use technological affordances for social organizing, and how these same tools are weaponized against them. She is published in Digital Studies/Le champ numérique, and Feminist Media Studies.
