Computer scientist, sociologist

Rajiv K. Mishra

I am a researcher with an interdisciplinary background in computer science, data communication networks, sociology and science, technology and society (STS) studies. My core interest is in sociological and historical research to study the relationships between state, technology (data-information-digital) and society. Keenly focusing on qualitative research methods for building methodological and conceptual frameworks, I am trying to aptly grasp newer technological realities in the Global South. I believe that these relationships can be extensively explored with novel research methods, conceptual frameworks and theory building, being contextual, and specific to the social, cultural and political aspects of the countries in the Global South.
It is because of this reason my research work strongly intersects with the network on Global Qualitative Sociology.
