More about Anu Masso
Her current research focuses on the big data turn in social sciences. She is interested in developing measurements and estimating bias of social dynamics of large-scale socio-cultural phenomena, like in the fields of social network analysis methods, and comparative social media analytics.
Furthermore, her research focuses on critical data studies, like the methodological shifts in social sciences in relation to the big data turn and examining socio-cultural consequences of big data, like data discrimination, algorithmic control, governance through data, etc, in the fields of spatial mobilities and migration.
