We aim to leverage the affordances of low-cost emerging technologies (such as cardboard VR viewers seen above) to enhance formal and informal learning environments.

We take an assets-based approach in our work, utilizing insights drawn from ethnographic methods to identify meaningful and sustainable pathways for the design of community-centric interventions. Assets could include tangible resources such as technology or money, but also social ties, ethics of care, practices of cultural production, and more.

Our research is centered around the design, deployment, adoption, and use of mobile technologies in underserved communities across US, India, Cuba, Ecuador, Bangladesh, and other countries. We pursue global development (and include US under "global").

As action researchers, we care about mobility from point A (current intersections) to point B (aspirational destinations).  Our research examines mobilities (social, economic, linguistic) and aspirational destinations in tandem. We call this aspirations-based design.

We focus on questions of participation, access, and equity in relation to technological engagement among offline and online information-sharing channels.

We have designed and studied interventions that look at community-led video education for maternal and newborn health. Other topics we have examined in global health include adolescent and sexual health education and HIV awareness. We aim to use learning sciences-driven approaches to target health education, and focus on sensitive topics that there is high social stigma around.
