  • Description : Professor Parthasarathy's research and teaching interests broadly focuses on the relationship between technological innovation, economic globalization, and social change. Within this broad focus, his work follows two threads. One thread examines the impacts of public policy and firm strategies on the organization of production in the ICT (information and communications technology) industry. Another thread deals with "ICTs for Development," or ICTD. Here his interests lie in understanding how ICTs are being deployed in various domains of activity to transform social relationships, especially in economically underprivileged contexts
