Biography

I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at University of Washington Information School. My research interest is on ICT for development (ICT[4]D) project/program evaluation. Currently I am working with UW Technology & Social Change Group (UW TASCHA) on regional libraries performance evaluation project. My past and ongoing research projects include: constructing an evaluation toolkit to assess intangible outcomes of ICTD projects based on Capability Approach (“Community Wellness Outcomes” toolkit); examining mobile phone uses and capability enhancement in the Global South; and exploring the implications of ICTD projects in individual and community development through the analytical lens of IT identity and social capital.
