Here’s a link to the main topic I am working on, Global Data Justice
I work at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT), at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. Previously I have been a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the University of Amsterdam, in Governance and Inclusive Development, and a researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute on a project about big data and its meaning for the social sciences. I conducted my doctoral research at the Institute of Development Studies on the diffusion of the internet in Africa. Before that, I was a researcher at the Rockefeller Foundation. I’m interested in the implications of data science and AI for human development, democracy and representation. This blog started off as a series of notes about my doctoral fieldwork in Ghana, but is now where I post about big data and other things.
The penguin is Niccolo. He came with me to Africa and other places, and has returned a dustier and wiser bird. There are some photos from his travels here.
