Hello! My name is Aleksandra Urman, and I am a (computational) social scientist with a passion for exploring the societal impact of information technology.
Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Social Computing Group, University of Zurich. Before joining SCG, I was a research assistant at the Institute of Communication and Media Studies at the University of Bern where I defended my doctoral dissertation on the comparative aspects of political polarization on social media.
I study societally-relevant effects of digitalization, with a particular focus on pressing problems and issues as polarization, far-right radicalization, algorithmic harms, societal and information inequalities.
Thank you for visiting my website, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to learn more about my research.
