The Challenges of Working with Crowd-Sourced Data
This interdisciplinary discussion will enable scientists, development practitioners and all those with an interest in crowdsourced data to discuss the challenges of collecting, analysing and sharing development and scientific data via citizen science projects, particularly involving mobile phone data collection. Details of the session are still being finalised, but the format will be innovative and interactive – stay tuned to find out more!

He is also one of the co-founders of The Kuyu Project (currently rebranded as Jamlab), StorySpaces, mSpoti, Semaje and pThor.
