My research interests span the domain of emerging Open ICT ecosystems, and includes open source software, open data, mobile and cloud computing. Currently actively involved in the embryonic open data movement in the Caribbean as a founding member of the Caribbean Open Institute, a regional coalition of Caribbean organizations that has become a catalyst and facilitator of open data initiatives within the region. The COI engages and works with regional governments, researchers, journalists, technologists, NGOs and academics, to raise awareness, strengthen capacity and foster collaborations towards the adoption of open development approaches.
