Simone Basso

Information Controls Fellow

Simone will work with Measurement Lab at the Open Technology Institute to advance the MeasurementKit platform. MeasurementKit is the engine underneath OONI-Probe’s mobile testing platform and the Measurement Lab performance testing platform that generates millions of data points each year. It is currently being integrated into the desktop testing platform creating a streamlined approach to future maintenance and upkeep. As a result, Simone will take on a variety of tasks to increase measurement capability and flexibility, platform availability and third party integrations. Some of the proposed work will create critical improvements to detecting network shutdowns. Simone’s previous research includes “Measuring DASH Streaming Performance from the End Users Perspective using Neubot.”
