My research interests are in networks, ICTD, HCI, and distributed systems. In my research I address fundamental scale and flexibility challenges faced by service provider networks. I build operational, deployable systems to democratize access networks and evaluate them through real-world deployments and fieldwork, informed by qualitative research with users and network operators. In doing so, my work both enables new classes of service providers to exist and expands the frontiers of the Internet beyond what is achievable today, providing more equitable access to communications, especially in rural and developing regions. My research has appeared in venues such as ICTD, SIGCOMM, and NSDI. I have received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and paper awards at NSDI, ACM DEV, and IEEE DySPAN.
