Personal profile

PhD research: This project will provide an in-depth account of how and why membership organisations in contemporary Britain acquire large quantities of digital data. The project will explore what personal data the organisations gather, through what processes and how the results of data analyses are fed back into their strategies and governance. The project will be able to draw conclusions about how these new practices may limit or promote various forms of democracy.

Research interests: technology, participation, political institutions, international law, particularly dispute settlement and human rights
