About Me

I am a master’s student at Michigan State University, Department of Media and Information. I am supervised by Dr. Susan Wyche. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Malawi, Chancellor College from 2011 – 2015. I majored in Computer Science and Physics. After I started my postgraduate studies at MSU, I have been doing research on the use of technology in Kenya.

My reasearch interests span across three fields: Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Information and Communication Technology for Development and Computer Science. My background in computer science and Physics helps me to develop research products that I deploy in the field.
