My name is Saman. My placement country is India. My organization is the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS). I was hired as an intern. My role is hazy and not clearly defined but it will involve supporting CIS and their research on the Internet (as it relates to society). I will be given the opportunity to collaborate with CIS on a project looking to collect and communicate services driven by open data. I'm very excited about this. I'm also excited about undertaking my undergraduate thesis - presumably concerned with the development-Internet nexus as well.
