"Hi Chris. This sounds like a very interesting project, but the links you have posted here do not give much information about how exactly you are going to use mobiles in this context. Where can we find out more about it? Thanks a lot! Valentina"

What are some of your current areas of research (if any)?
My research looks at the use of participatory communication and participatory media (radio, video, photography and theatre) with specific focus on conflict transformation / post-conflict reconciliation in African countries affected by civil violence.

As part of my doctorate project, I have worked on the evaluation of two participatory media activities implemented in Kenya in the aftermath of the 2007/2008 Post-Election Violence. I have assessed the impact of these projects in relation to ethnic reconciliation between and among communities in specific areas of the Rift Valley, where I have spent three months interviewing both victims and perpetrators of the 2007/2008 conflict who have been in contact with these media productions. I have collaborated with the international NGO Mercy Corps.

More generally, I am also interested in looking at the different ways communication can be used in development contexts (particularly in post-conflict settings), as well as in studying the impact / reaction that communities living in extreme poverty have when introduced to the use of the media.
If appropriate feel free to list several of your (or your organization's) publications
