RICARDO GOMEZ

Associate Professor

Research

My research interests focus on the uses of information and communication technologies in the context of migration, human rights and social justice. I specialize in social dimensions of the use (or non-use) of communication technologies, and how they contribute (or not) to well-being and social justice. I am particularly interested in qualitative research methods and in group facilitation and process design. These methods help me find creative ways to communicate complex ideas and research results in everyday language.

BEFORE JOINING THE iSCHOOL,

I worked with private, public, and nonprofit sectors around the world, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean. I’ve held positions with Microsoft Community Affairs, and with the International Development Research Center in Canada. I hold an MA from Université du Québec à Montréal (1992) and a Ph.D. from Cornell University (1997).
