The news

My arm’s sore. It’s got five new holes in it: two in my left bicep, two in my right bicep, one on the inside of my arm. Vaccinations: hepatitis A, polio booster, flu booster, typhoid fever, blood work to determine if I can take a certain kind of malarial prophylaxis for when I get back.
Why the shots? The bugs in New Haven aren’t that bad. It’s time to share my news.
I’m going to spend the last 2/3 of the summer in Bangalore, India. I’ll be a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research India, researching mobile phone sharing in the aspiring and emerging middle class. I’ll be working in part with Jonathan Donner.
My interest in this comes from the thesis chapter I turned in at the end of spring semester. I’m thrilled that the possibility of doing my own research in the area will be a reality. I’ll be in India from early July till late August. Woo hoo!


  1. Have a fabulous adventure! I hope to see you in New Haven at the end of the summer (9/1?) and hear all about it.

  2. Enjoy India! I hope you will find time to post and upload pics while you’re gone. Those of us who don’t travel (well… ME, specifically) have a tendency to live vicariously through those of you who do, so I look forward to “travelling” with you! Good luck, and have fun!

  3. Congrats!
    I visited that office in January – the people seemed very nice and very talented; that’ll be an interesting summer! I can’t wait to see pictures and hear stories!
