CHCI Welcomes New Member: Shaddi Hasan
December 6, 2021
Shaddi Hasan is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. His research interests are in networks, information and communication technologies for development (ICTD), and HCI. Hasan’s research addresses challenges building infrastructure for underserved populations. He builds operational, deployable systems to expand access to network infrastructure and evaluate them through real-world deployments and fieldwork, informed by qualitative research with users and network operators. In doing so, his 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.
