Bridging Application and Network Gaps
We conduct Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D) research with and for marginalised communities to improve quality of life, publish our work and graduate students. We do this because we care. Our current focus is learning how to transfer the fruits of our research back to the communities with whom we work, and to learn how to ensure communities can sustainably transfer and maintain community development leveraging ICT by themselves.
