This is the personal webpage of David Nemer. I’m an Assistant Professor of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the School of Information Science at the University of Kentucky. I received a PhD in Informatics from Indiana University, USA. I also received a MSc. in Computer Science from Saarland University, Germany. I hold a BSc. in Computer Science from FAESA, Brazil and a BSc. in Business Administration from UFES, Brazil. My research and teaching interests cover the intersection of international development, new media, community informatics, ICT for Development (ICT4D), science and technology studies (STS), postcolonial STS, and human-computer interaction (HCI). Methodologically, I use qualitative methods drawn from critical ethnography in online and offline contexts, and quantitative and qualitative content analysis of the web.

In 2013 I published my first book in collaboration with Varal Communication Agency: “Favela Digital – The other side of technology”. The book is an opportunity to show, in photos and short text, the reality I lived in during six months visiting the Favelas (urban slums) of Vitoria, Brazil. http://favela-digital.com
