Gloire Rubambiza | [CV]
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science (CS) at Cornell University, where I am co-advised by Hakim Weatherspoon and Phoebe Sengers. Before joining Cornell, I received a B.S. in CS at Grand Valley State University (GVSU).
I am interested in Systems & Networking and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Broadly, in addition to anticipating their social impacts, I design, build, and deploy computing systems in resource-constrained environments.
- Name TBD: A reconfigurable hardware/software platform for digital agriculture (Work In Progress)
- Societal Impact of Farm Networking: A socio-technical approach to anticipating the impact of high-bandwidth farm networking
- Vegvisir: A distributed, partition-tolerant log for IoT applications
