‘’With the goal of unraveling the stories that Big Data tells’’

I am student of International Studies at Leiden University specialising in Sub-Saharan Africa and former policy research intern at United Nations Global Pulse for the Data Climate Action Challenge (D4CA). As a student fellow, I am currently working on annotated bibliographies on issues relating to Data Responsibility and conducting background research pertaining to International Humanitarian Law. As well as, giving the occasional talk on issues of Big Data for Peace and Innovative Approaches to Peace and Justice. I joined the CFI to put my interest in Critical Theory into action by engaging with the new field Big Data. I am looking for internships or job opportunities to gain experience and further cement both my academic knowledge and hands-on involvement at the CFI and UNGP. Particularly, think tanks and international organisations with projects that focus on the fields of application and policy drafting of responsible data use, data philanthropy (private sector data sharing) and data innovation schemes.
