Susan Wyche: Design for the Developing World

Susan Wyche is a Computing Innovation Fellow at Virginia Tech's Center for Human-Computer Interaction. Her research focuses on human-computer interaction, design and cultural studies of technology. In her dissertation, Wyche used religion as a lens to understand how alternative worldviews can inform design. She has explored how Muslims in Atlanta, Charismatic Pentecostals in Sao Paulo, and Protestant Christians in Nairobi, use mobile phones, computers, and the Internet to support their religious practices.
