Ronda Zelezny-Green Awarded US Fulbright Student Award

Posted on 16/04/2013

Ronda Zelezny-Green has been awarded a U.S. Fulbright Student award to Kenya for the 2013-2014 academic year. This award will support Ronda when she undertakes PhD fieldwork for nine months in Nairobi and Kisumu.

Ronda is in the first year of her PhD and is a member of the ICT4D Centre and the Politics, Development and Sustainability Group. She is jointly supervised by Dr Dorothea Kleine (RHUL) and Niall Winters (Institute of Education). Her PhD studies are funded by a Crossland Scholarship award from RHUL. Ronda’s research will explore the potential of participatory design with Kenyan secondary school girls to create mobile-based social learning opportunities in informal settings. This project builds on the research Ronda conducted for her dissertation on the MSc in Practising Sustainable Development (ICT for Development specialism) in 2012.

On hearing about her award, Ronda said: "Earning the U.S. Fulbright Student award is an incredible honour for me, and would not have been possible without the support of my family, friends, supervisors and academic colleagues. I look forward to continuing the work I have begun in the field of ICT4D in the underexplored area of gender and mobile learning."
