Projects

I have three distinct projects going, each with different clusters of faculty colleagues, graduate students, post docs, and funders.  Since so much research these days involves extended networks of collaborators, my research projects often involve a several institutions.  For more on impact, see the section on publications, how the research has been covered in the news, or the original data sets that have been created for other researchers to use.

World Information Access Project

The mission of  World Information Access Project is to present data on the unequal distribution of technology access, skills, and capacity between and within countries around the world. A significant amount of the research we do is original, and combines existing data from traditional sources in original ways.
