Martino Mensio

PhD Research Student

Part of the Social Data Science group, I started my PhD at the Open University on 1st October 2019 under the supervision of Harith Alani and Alistair Willis.

In my PhD I want to explore how different articles present the same events, by using different emphasis and selecting different details and therefore providing a different framing.

In the past, I worked on the Co-Inform project with the objective of creating tools to identify the credibility of news sources and help to develop critical thinking.
