Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am a PhD in Communication student and am presently reviewing for my Comprehensive Examinations prior to my dissertation year. Before I went on study leave, I have been teaching in the University for 20 years, although not continuously. I chaired the Department of Development Communication, a Bachelor's course in a Jesuit-run university south of Manila specifically in Cagayan de Oro City in Mindanao island, Philippines. At the same time I also do trainings and consultancy work for both government and non-government organizations in the field of Communication, Social Change, Social Marketing and research. More recently I took an interest in the use of ICT for Development and has done research on e-governance, e-participation and social networking using the Net. I am interested to study how ICT can further be used by rural communities in our island and how it can leverage information and education to benefit majority of the marginalized communities. My dissertation would be focused on this area. I got interested in what MirandaNet is doing and I think it can help me understand further my interests in ICT and the revolutionary way it transforms the society.
