Designing Digital Services for Gleaning in Atlanta
MetadataShow full item record
This is the compiled work for my master’s project, advised by Dr. Carl DiSalvo, as a requirement for completing the M.S. Human-Computer Interaction degree at Georgia Tech. First, I present formative work that describes gleaning as a practice to reduce food waste and improve food security, and my fieldwork using mixed research methods with local practitioners and leaders in this space. This is followed by my systems-oriented design iterations and prototyping of Gleanhub, including research through design (RtD) methods in open source civic communities. Finally, I present an evaluation of Gleanhub and the system, discuss further work, and suggest future work including immediately actionable projects.
