PhD student and PhD students representative in design.
Her research lies at the intersection of information design, media studies – specifically on information disorders circulating on social media platforms – and social sciences.
Within the current participatory social media landscape fostering the infodemic, she explores how data visualisations can mislead and deceive during social crises with or without the intention to. The focus is on information visualisations circulating on social media platforms about Covid-19 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The research encourages the discussion around the un-neutrality of information visualisations by defining and classifying “visualisation disorders”.
