Tolu Odumosu is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with a joint appointment with the Science, Technology and Public Policy Program. Topically, his research is focused on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), with particular emphasis on mobile devices and their appropriation, the design and implementation of national telecommunications infrastructure, and the governance of transnational ICT technical standards organizations. Theoretically, most of Dr. Odumosu’s work focuses on developing and expanding the notion of “constitutive appropriation” as an analytical framework, geared towards a more robust theory of democratic participation that includes both human and non-human elements.

Tolu most recently completed his Ph.D. dissertation work in which he examined Nigeria’s adoption and use of mobile communication technologies. He holds a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a M.Eng. from Cornell University in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a B.Sc. (Honors) in Electrical Electronics Engineering from the University of Lagos, Nigeria.
