I’ve recently been appointed to a new role as Lecturer in Digital Methods at the Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London. The department is a world-leading centre for “critical inquiry with and about the digital”, with staff research interests in science and technology studies, internet studies, the politics of platforms and AI, global digital cultures, digital economy, digital innovation, cultural heritage, game studies and other fields.
As well as continuing my research on digital culture, digital journalism, data journalism and digital methods, I’ll be working on several new projects with the Public Data Lab, as well as collaborations with Noortje Marres (on “Tracing Public Facts”), Wendy Chun (on “Beyond Verification: Authenticity and the Spread of Misinformation”), Kari De Pryck (on climate politics) and Rina Tsubaki (on forests in society, with the European Forest Institute). There will be a few other activities building on the new edition of the Data Journalism Handbook (forthcoming, Amsterdam University Press) and the Field Guide to “Fake News”.
For my teaching I’m convening and contributing to modules on:
- Digital Methods for Internet Studies: Concepts, Devices and Data (MA)
- An Introduction to Data Journalism (MA)
- Global Digital Audiences (MA)
- Data Visualisation (MA)
- Digital Methods: Working with Data (BA)
- Digital Journalism (BA)
I’m joining the department as part of a group of newly hired researchers in associated fields, whom you can find more about here.
