Dr Caitlin Bentley

PhD Human Geography
Research Fellow


Caitlin Bentley has been working within the area of information and communications technologies for development (ICT4D) since 2003. She began researching the use of ICT within civil society organisations in Africa, Canada, and the UK. She has contributed to a number of projects focused on enhancing learning and accountability through ICT. In 2015, she started working for the Singapore Internet Research Centre at Nanyang Technological University to pursue her interests in open development, which she views as a window to address structural inequalities and to take advantage of new collaboration opportunities afforded by networked ICTs. She helped to create a programme of research on open development, within which she has co-edited the book entitled Critical Perspectives on Open Development: Empirical Interrogation of Theory Construction (forthcoming). Recently, Caitlin has been engaged in drafting policy for including Indonesian small businesses and marginalised actors in the platform economy of the tourism sector. 

Caitlin joined the 3A Institute in July, 2018 and will contribute to teaching and learning with the 3A institute, as well as to case study research on cyber-physical systems. 

Caitlin holds a PhD in Human Geography from Royal Holloway University of London, UK, an MA in Educational Technology from Concordia University, Canada, and a BA in Computer Science from McGill University, Canada. She is a Fellow at the UK's Software Sustainability Institute.
