Professor Martina Padmanabhan is a Principal Investigator in the Cyber<>Institutions research area. Here is her contribution:

‘I am interested in the potentials and opportunities offered by digitalisation for improving access to data and bringing about an amelioration in participation in a development context.’

Why she participates in Cyber<>Spaces:
