Project Manager, Frugal Digital, Denmark.
Frugal Digital seeks to explore a deconstructed view on technology at a local level to address large global challenges. It is a research group that focuses on researching methods and practices around creating digital solutions in low resource settings like that of developing economies. The main research enquiry is how do we apply frugality to digital life and create solutions that are inexpensive, adaptable, re-purposes or uses available resources and creates valuable knowledge along with new solutions?
I have helped in creating the projects, planning & conducting field research and eventually dissemination of various projects and results. The project continues to invest time and resources on new projects and it is an ongoing activity.
