Teaching

I’ve been teaching Data Journalism from 2015 at Master degree in “Publishing, multimedia communication, and journalism” Department of Communication and Social research (CoRis),  Sapienza – University of Rome.

Previously I taught Political Communication,  Sociology of Communication, Theories of mass communication at University of Sassari .

Research

My general area of interest focuses on the intersection between digital technology and society. This includes research on social network sites, web platforms, digital journalism, and political communication. In particular, in the last four years I have worked in two specific areas: data journalism and Recommender System platforms (RS’s).

The first area investigates some basic questions concerning what role numerical data play in the production and distribution of information in the digital era. My research analyses which specific form of data driven journalism is used by Italian newspapers, and in the Italian scenario in general,  especially in relation with the concept of “news”.

The second area includes projects at the intersection of Computer Science, Psychological and  Social Sciences whose goal is to investigate the extent to which a cultural market can be affected by RS’s and the interplay between computational and psychological mechanisms underlying them.

Recently I started studying the influence Social Bot accounts have on social media ecosystem.

Due to my interest in political communication and social network sites, I have been  Principal Investigator of “Politics as cultural practice. A Pioneering approach to connect consumption and politics”, a designated research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, from 2014 to 2016.

I have been member of the  research team of  “The computational psychology of digital shop assistants” (Principal Investigator: Alessandro Panconesi), a designated research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, from 2015 to 2017.
