Working title: The University of Data: Ethical and Social Futures of Data-Driven Education

My PhD research relates to the ethical and social implications of increasingly data-driven universities and the changing role and activities of universities in digital society. Key questions include what the data-driven university looks like, who is proposing data and AI futures for universities, and what messages about AI, datafication and ethics are being communicated to students in the process. The project is funded via the Centre for Technomoral Futures in the Edinburgh Futures Institute, and is co-supervised between Digital Sociology and Digital Education. I also take part in regular cohort activities with the other Baillie Gifford Fellows in the Centre, led by Professor Shannon Vallor.

Supervisors: Dr Karen Gregory (Digital Sociology), Dr Jen Ross (Digital Education)
