I'm a doctoral student at University of Ottawa focusing on Maternal and Child Health issues in Eastern Africa.

I began using ODK in 2013 for an HIV trial in Uganda; currently I'm using it in a community-based health service trial in Ethiopia. I created surveys for both these trials using XLSForms and haven't yet tried using Build. I've still got plenty to learn and I'm looking forward to it!


(Collins Ozoadibe) #681

Hello all,

My name is Collins I. Ozoadibe and I am from Nigeria based in Abuja; a graduate of Statistics from Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Nigeria.

A friend introduced me to the community after I participated in a survey using CAPI for the first in 2016.

I started as an enumerator, then a desk-tester and now a programmer for most projects my organisation manages. I have worked on several evaluation projects, because of the organisation I represent and I have trained many organisations and individuals on ODK design. I will also love to learn from another.

I can be reached via @snillok4u on all social media platforms.
I manage data using STATA and Excel.
I love blogging and I also enjoy looking for a problem to solve, staying innovative in in my career.

I don't think I mention that I love driving, and I really do.
I wish I could write more about myself.

(Arnesh Agrawal) #690

Hello! I am Arnesh Agrawal, a Freshman studying Computer Science and Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. I am highly interested in Android Development since Day-1 of joining my college and learned the basics of it since then. I participated in the Winter Of Code'18 (A similar version to Gsoc held in my college) and I am a member of the Mobile Development Group of my college. My Github account link is I have also developed a basic SOS application called 'Help' and its code can be found in my Github repository.
I have gone through the basic idea of ODK tools and I am really interested in contributing to ODK collect.
I am interested in working with ODK for Gsoc'19.
Apart from the technical stuff, I am interested in reading books and playing badminton! :slight_smile:
Please get me started through the contribution so that we can rock and roll! :smiley:

(Prarabdh Garg) #692

Hello Everyone. I am Prarabdh Garg from India. I am currently in the first year of my graduation from Birla Institute of Science and Technology, Pilani . My interest in android Application Development started when I was in 12th, and was learning java. I wanted to convert basic text-only programs to something more attractive. On research I fount that Android development also uses Java, and so I started learning it.

Now, after having learnt Android Mobile Development for around a year, I have started to get the hang of it. I am a part of the collage team that develops mobile apps for the fests held in our collage. I am currently working on making a quiz app along with the other members of my team. Other projects made by me could be found on my Github profile.

I am here as I senior of mine suggested it to be a good organization to work with for the upcoming GSoC. Apart from GSoC, I also wanted to gain some experience about how to write code collectively.

Apart from app development, my other interests include playing FPS video games, reading and playing cricket.

(Parviz Parvizi) #694

Hi everyone, I joined the ODK Forum to help out a friend who is having a hard time getting the technical side of things humming for a health surveillance study. I have a background that vaguely touches on the general domain of survey work and analytics (e.g., own a company that provides location and related analytics for mobile phone users in large buildings such as mall, casinos etc; have had a couple of stints working in rural Africa; co-founded the iConsumer initiative at McKinsey surveying consumer digital behaviors globally). But, haven't had a chance to use ODK and thought leaning in would be a great way to help out a friend and maybe learn something in the process.

If you have suggestions on experienced ODK developers, would appreciate any leads.

I posted some background on the research project on the Marketplace board here.
