I’m Kurtis Heimerl, Assistant Professor at the University of Washington. I work with the wonderful students in the Change and ICTD groups.

I am currently a senior graduate student in the ICTD Lab working with Prof. Kurtis Heimerl. My research focuses on Community Cellular Networking with an emphasis on the challenges of implementing and sustaining Community Cellular networks in the 4G, 5G, and nextG era. I also have some ongoing work in cellular network security and a general interest in mobile ad-hoc and mesh networking too. Outside of research, I’m really excited about CS-education, and how people understand computer networks around them and the broader Internet.
