Welcome

I’m currently an associate researcher at the Weizenbaum Institute and research and data Analyst for Mozilla’s Internet Health Report.

My research is broadly about how datafication affects democratic visions and practices. With ‘datafication’ I do not simply mean that more and more aspects of our social life are being quantified, but that the ways in which data is perceived and understood is changing. In my dissertation, I studied the practices and imaginaries of data journalists and activists in the open data and civic tech movement. I mostly employ qualitative methods (interviews, ethnography), but also have experience in quantitative methods like surveys or Digital Methods. My research has been published in journals such as Big Data & Society and Digital Journalism. I completed my PhD at the Research Centre for Media and Journalism Studies at the University of Groningen (Netherlands).
