Bio

Samantha Bradshaw holds a Ph.D. from the Oxford Internet Institute at Oxford University. Samantha is broadly interested in the relationship between technology and democracy, and the politics embedded into the technical design and private practices of platform companies. Her postdoctoral fellowship work will examine the gender dimensions of disinformation, and how harassment and misogyny are used to suppress the political participation of women online.

Prior to joining CISAC, Samantha worked on the Computational Propaganda Project at Oxford University, where her research examined the producers and drivers of disinformation and propaganda online.
