I am a Mauritanian Fulbright Visiting Scholar at George Washington University. I am currently doing research about how to apply new ICTs in developing countries. I am interested in the potentiality and complexity of ICT for development as I believe it can enable social and economic growth in emerging markets. I have several years of work experience in Mauritania and I have the motivation and the drive to learn and enhance my knowledge about Africa and development issues. I am fascinated about emerging technologies and challenges of designing sustainable projects and programmes that make use of ICT with the goal of reducing poverty in rural areas. My goal is to help rural communities and marginalized areas overcome the digital divide and gain access to relevant ICTs.
