Supervisory Committee: Richard Anderson (Chair), Ryan Calo (GSR, School of Law), Franzi Roesner, and Matt Welsh (Google)
Abstract: Mobile phones and the internet are powerful technologies affecting many areas of society. Most advances in these areas disproportionately benefit the wealthy and well-connected. My work has explored ways that mobile technology and the web can be used in resource-constrained settings, and specifically in the developing world. This talk will describe a framework for simplifying mobile workflows and for sharing web content on local networks.
