Best non-CS student paper @ FAT*2020

The last four days I spent in Barcelona, attending the ACM conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency. What a ride it has been! It was my first time at FAT*/FAccT and it has been absolutely amazing and inspiring. When I started my PhD it was my goal to get accepted to the FAT* (now ‘FAccT’) conference with my work. Not only did I get accepted, I was also awarded wih the best student paper award. It still feels a bit surreal, but I am so happy, honored, and thankful to have been given this opportunity and to see that my work resonates with this wonderful community. 

You can find my paper here:

The presentation will be uploaded to YouTube in the coming days, and you should be able to find it here:

Digital Tools & Uses Conference 2018

The past few days, I’ve been attending the Digital Tools & Uses Conference in Paris, where I was part of the Web Studies track. I’ve presented the Tool Criticism paper I’ve written together with Karin van Es and Mirko Tobias Schäfer. Our paper is published in the ACM proceedings, and can be found here. It’s been a great opportunity to talk about our ideas with other scholars/scientists!


Data Justice Conference 2018

Daniela van Geenen and myself had the pleasure to present the work we have done, together with Karin van Es and Jelmer van Nuss, on the Gephi Field Notes Plugin at the Data Justice Conference 2018. We had a great time in Cardiff, and were happy to receive so much great feedback on the project. The paper will be published in the Good Data book, the plugin can be found on GitHub.
