Serval Project, Founder/Software Developer
Dr. Paul Gardner-Stephen has been writing communications software from age 16, and is founder of The Serval Project, software which allows ordinary cell phones to form networks without using towers, but keeping their existing phone numbers, and facilitating crowd-sourced situation awareness. Dr. Gardner Stephen is passionate about the opportunity that the Serval Project offers in terms of aiding in emergencies and disasters as well as enfranchising the poorest two billion who lack access to affordable telephony, if it is available to them at all. He is Flinders University Research Fellow in Rural, Remote & Humanitarian Telecommunications.
