Dr Caitlin Bentley

Research Fellow, 3A Institute

Dr Bentley is a Research Fellow at the 3Ai. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from McGill University, a MA in Educational Technology from Concordia University and a PhD in Human Geography from the Royal Holloway University of London. Her early research career explored digitally-enabled openness (open data, open source software, crowdsourcing, etc.) in the context of development. She is particularly interested in how technology can improve learning and accountability, specifically through opening up participation, collaboration and knowledge sharing processes. In 2012, Caitlin was awarded a fellowship with the UK’s Software Sustainability Institute as well as a Slawson Award for fieldwork from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Caitlin has worked as a knowledge officer, social media strategist, and development project coordinator for development organisations in Canada. In her career, she has worked with over 20 CSOs in several African countries, and as such her research is grounded in the practical and strategic needs of CSO workers and their target groups
