Irina Shklovski

Irina Shklovski (PhD, Carnegie Mellon University) is ? Associate Professor in the Interaction Design and Technologies in Practice research groups at the IT University of Copenhagen. Her research is positioned at the intersection of communication, sociology, information science and human computer interaction, largely focusing on big data, information privacy and social networks. Her current projects consider privacy, online information disclosure and data leakage on mobile devices working to address the sense of powerlessness people often experience in the face of massive personal data collection. Her recent collaborations with data scientists in industry and academia explore what we can learn solely from structural analysis of large social network datasets as well as how we can enrich our understanding and ability to exploit these datasets through qualitative methods. Dr. Shklovski is an expert on user interactions with data having completed projects on data in contemporary digital lives, critical systems and technology use in crisis response, communication technology use and innovation in Post-Soviet environments, and, most recently, on privacy, creepy technologies and ethics in IoT design.
