We welcome Dr Fabian Braesemann to our expert team of the Data Innovation Project.

Dr. Fabian Braesemann is Data Scientist at the Oxford Internet Institute working on the Geonet and Big Data and Human Development projects. In these projects, he investigates Sub-Saharan Africa’s participation in the digital knowledge economy, online communities of Islam scholars on Twitter, mobile phone data on mobility in Rwanda’s capital Kigali, and outsourcing in online labour platforms.

Moreover, he works on a project that investigates Wikipedia data as a means to approximate regional distribution of knowledge and human capital. His research interest is on the application of data mining techniques on data sources like Web of Science, Twitter or Wikipedia to evaluate questions from economics and social sciences.

Broadly, Fabian’s research is on quantitative approaches in internet geography, digital inequality and participation in the knowledge economy.  Fabian holds a PhD in Economics from Vienna University of Economics and Business (2016).
