I am broadly interested in information and communication technologies (ICTs) – in particular, the internet and mobile phones – in low-income and low-infrastructure countries and contexts. This field is sometimes referred to as ICTD (information and communication technologies for/and development).
I am always on the look-out for new and exciting research prospects and partners! Some of the broad areas that I focus on are:
ICTS For Democracy, Peace and Reconciliation
Public Policies, Assessments and Evaluations
HCI For Development
Last Mile Initiatives
Examining how systems, policies, and people can bring ICT connectivity to everyone, everywhere. Considering innovations that support some of the most infrastructure-challenging environments. Some research questions: What network technologies are most effective, innovative and, sustainable? When do we not what to be networked? What are the appliances and applications most empowering?
