Dr Shantha Karthigesu

As Associate Investigator, Dr Shantha Karthigesu is currently scoping literature on cultural preservation and relationships between grandparents and grandchildren who communicate primarly via digital technology. Shantha hopes to bring to light the importance of digital technology in keeping the culture alive in the global diaspora. She also hopes to see digital technology used as a tool that can help bring equity and social justice. Solutions are just a click away and she hopes they see digital technology for all the good it can do.
