Beyond lecturing in Media Research Methods I am also keen to explore neighboring areas such as the usage of statistics and data for political and social purposes. I look at how numbers are used by Mass media to portray social issues and to influence public opinion.
Another strand of research is the Philosophy of Information. Here I try to find ways to apply the PI as a theoretical framework for a better understanding of Information ethics, system thinking, Artificial Intelligence and, ultimately, Law.
I consider myself an anti-dogmatic by nature, for this reason I like challenging conventions and widely accepted truths. In this sense, one marginal, but not less important, area of interest, is how Eastern philosophies can enhance or challenge our Western-centric view of life and science.
