Philip Pond is a researcher in digital communication and software studies. He lectures in the Master of Communication and is a member of the Digital-Social Systems Lab.
My work analyses the mechanisms by which digital systems shape human interactions, in terms of discourse and politics; security and resilience; power and knowing (culture).
I’m particularly interested in:
The structure and affordances of software, algorithms and digital communication systems;
The philosophy of technology and mediation;
The politics of techno-social interaction;
Public-political discourse and communication theory;
Communicative resilience and emergency notification systems.
