My research investigates emerging technological practices in underserved contexts to design appropriate interventions for developing community resilience. Central to my work are themes of access, equity, and participation in technological engagements that I use ethnographic methods to examine. I leverage these findings towards information-centric mobile technology interventions for the resilience of underserved communities in India, Bangladesh, Cuba, Pakistan, and other countries
