Christopher Le Dantec

Chris Le Dantec is an Assistant Professor of Digital Media in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech.

His research is focused on integrating theoretical, empirical, and design-based investigations of mobile technologies for disenfranchised and marginalized segments of U.S. society, such as the urban homeless and the working poor. By focusing on uncommon communities of users—communities for whom technology use might be considered a secondary concern—he examines alternate constraints on mobile computing in urban life, the way social service organizations use information technology, and the role of participatory design in articulating common social issues and constructing publics to confront those issues.

His research touches a number of different domains, including: human-computer interactioncomputer-supported cooperative worksocial computingurban computing, and design.
