Welcome, Gokul Krishnan!

7 November 2023

We are thrilled to welcome our newest ThinkLab Visiting Research Fellow, Gokul Krishnan!

Dr. Gokul Krishnan serves as the Inclusive Knowledge Lead at Google REWS (Real Estate and Workplace Services). In this role, he provides REWS and partners with knowledge and guidance, ensuring truly inclusive and equitable spaces for all Googlers. Prior to Google, Gokul founded Maker Therapy, a program designed to enrich the lives of chronically and terminally ill youth, their families, and siblings in pediatric care settings. Dr. Krishnan has a PhD in Learning Sciences from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Riverside. In 2015, Gokul was honored by the White House for pioneering Maker Therapy.

Gokul will be part of our first-ever ThinkLab hackathon with Google and BBC, to be held at Jesus College, Cambridge during December 11-12, 2023.

For any Google, BBC, and University of Cambridge members that would like to join us, learn more about the event and sign up here.

As Gokul believes, “True inclusion transcends mere policies or actions; it’s deeply anchored in an unwavering and transformative mindset that influences every decision and fosters genuine connection.”
