Prospective Students

If you are a prospective PhD student interested in working with me, please apply to the UMSI PhD program. If you are a current UM master’s or undergraduate student interested in working with me, please email me (mmtd [at]] with your CV/resume and research interests.

I am particularly interested in working with students who want to conduct research on one or more of the following topics: 1) community networks and internet access initiatives; 2) innovation, creativity, and collaboration in under-resourced communities; 3) the interplay between culture and technology use among underrepresented groups; 4) social media use among marginalized populations in the U.S. and international contexts.
