Taylor

I research the interface between big data, rights and democratic representation worldwide. My work looks at how people are represented through digital data, and particularly at social and economic inclusion and exclusion through data. I look at these problems in particular environments including the development and humanitarian response sectors, smart cities and living labs, and more broadly in the public sphere in countries worldwide.

I was previously a Marie Curie fellow in the International Development Studies department at the University of Amsterdam, where I researched the emergence of ethical frameworks around the use of big data in development policy. I also conducted postdoctoral research at the Oxford Internet Institute on big data in social science, and I hold a DPhil in Development Studies from the Institute of Development Studies, UK.
