The Technologies and International Development Lab at Georgia Tech researches the practice and the promise of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in social, economic, and political development. In particular we study mobile and internet-enabled services and their design, impact, and importance within countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The T+ID Lab is an interdisciplinary community bringing together computer and social scientists with design and policy specialists. We collaborate directly with stakeholders outside of the Lab to invent new technologies, evaluate existing ones, and research how and why ICTs can serve as a tool to empower, enrich, and interconnect.
Future Lab members: We are always looking to add new members to our team. Georgia Tech students (undergraduate to graduate) should contact us if they have a passion to truly impact the world, embrace working in inter-disciplinary teams, and are open to international travel.
