I am a social data scientist at the Open University, working on the topics of networked misogyny, discrimination and hate speech, as well as disinformation and misinformation. My work typically addresses inequality or intersectionality in the above themes. My background is in learning and cognition, with an interest in how new technologies (such as artificial intelligence, learning analytics, augmented reality, virtual reality, blockchains and peer-to-peer service architecture) create new ways of supporting the learning process (in both formal and non-formal environments).
