Here’s a theme-based short summary of my ongoing or recently concluded research projects.

Algorithmic knowing:

Environmentally sustainable information infrastructures:

Teaching research methods:

Together with Ass. Prof. Babak Frashchian, we are in charge of a six-month project with title: “Framework for teaching research methods at the Department of Computer Science (IDI)“. We are in the progress of creating a teaching framework for critical thinking and research methods at IDI. Our goal is that, within 2025, all students leaving our department will have had one of our three existing courses in these areas. Resources will be used to plan and improve this framework and extend/redesign three existing courses at MSc and PhD levels. We will also use the resources to join the international community of research methods education. Funding: EXCITED SFU.
