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:
‘I believe that questions and problems of this kind can only be approached and solved together, across disciplines. In our approach I see the potential for driving the exploration of Cyber<>Spaces not only on a theoretical level but also on a methodological one.’
